Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to demonstrate a method of relating doctrine to requirements when considering space concepts. Service contractors, consider the advantages of space, and then relate the advantages of space to the overall context of the proposed space system working within current and future military organizations. To perform these tradeoffs requires a strong foundation in how the services plan to operate in the next conflict; the AirLand Battle and Maritime Strategy provide this strong foundation and will be examined. The Army's Concept Based requirements System (CBRS) relates doctrine to requirements; it will be described as a recommended method for determining joint requirements. To illustrate how CBRS will operate when considering joint space requirements, the concept of a space-based laser designator is explored. Keywords: Space operations, Airland battle, Maritime strategy, Doctrine, Strategy, Joint requirements, Laser weapons, Command and control, Models, Program management.
