“The Air Force Space Command’s Space Enterprise Vision (SEV)”sev

Los Angeles Chapter meeting on October 21

There is a concern that the current space enterprise is not resilient enough to be successful in a conflict that extends to space, that current stove piped PoR are unable to survive a war in space with near peer adversaries. It was recognized that we need a future enterprise that can deter, and if necessary prevail, in a war that extends into space.

In August 2015 the Air Force Space Command Commander, Gen Hyten, commissioned a study aimed at charting a new vision for the Air Force space enterprise. Among other findings, the study concluded that “Most US military space systems are not designed with threats in mind and instead are built for long-term functionality and efficiency with systems operating for decades”
