Abstract : The ultimate objective of military space operations is the effective employment of space capabilities in support of land, sea and air operations to gain and maintain a combat advantage throughout the operational continuum and across the three levels of war. Accomplishing this objective requires the employment of space forces when and where they are needed-an objective that can be met by rapid space force reconstitution. RASFOR must be an integral part of a balanced approach to military spacelift if the United States is to ensure its control over the ultimate high ground of space.
