Space National Guard as Primary Combat Reserve within Space Force

Air National Guard

The Issue

The Air National Guard currently comprises over 10% of Space Force manpower. The creation of the U.S. Space Force (USSF) in the FY2020 NDAA failed to establish a Space National Guard as the primary combat reserve of the USSF. This orphaned space professionals and operational missions that exist in the Air National Guard, disconnecting them from their parent service, the USSF, making their future unclear and undefined.

Recommendation

  • Create the Space National Guard as the primary combat reserve component to the U.S. Space Force
  • Resourced the National Guard to support current and emerging space warfighting requirements
