The US Space Force is using commercial off-the-shelf satellites to augment its current fleet of billion-dollar systems—this has been made possible by the reorganization of the launch industry, with the Space Force adopting a more commercial focus to achieve its mission.

  • SpaceX paved the way for the initial commercialization of space launches, with several others following.
  • Space Force has already reorganized to see space mobility’s future adopting a  commercial focus to achieve its operational and strategic goals.
  • Due to the shift to a more commercially focussed Space Force, space force commanders and leaders will probably need a background in engineering and business.
