Space Operations Command's approach to deterring conflict and preserving our military's freedom of action in space


On February 22nd, 2023 the National Defense University Foundation and Lt. Gen. Whiting, Commander, Space Operations Command took an in depth look at the threats and challenges our nation is confronting in space. For decades, the U.S. has been the most dominant space power, but that dominance has been challenged. USSF conducts operations in, from, and to space to deter conflict; deliver space combat power for the joint force, allies and partners; and defeat aggression, if necessary. Learn more about how Space Operations Command continues to collaborate with allies, industry partners and inter-government agencies to deter conflict, preserve peace and strengthen our military freedoms in space. Strength is gained through partnering.
