Summary

Air and space power are arms of national power. Air power is the capacity and ability of a nation to project its power or assert its will in, through, or from the air domain. Recognising the additional operational domains of space, maritime, land, and cyber, it represents a highly agile and potent form of military power for any joint combat force. Space power is the ability of a nation to exploit space to accomplish national objectives, whilst denying access to adversaries, by conducting activities in, through, and from space. The Runway will source content from leading air and space practitioners, academia, air operators, and industry innovators to inform a comprehensive understanding of air and space power for Australia's future.
