Abstract : Mr. Chairman, and members of the Subcommittee, I am pleased to appear before you to discuss the Department of Defense space activities in support of the President's fiscal year 1996 budget request. The United States conducts a variety of activities in space in support of national security objectives. DOD space forces support a wide range of requirements critical to the National Command Authorities, combatant commanders, and operational forces. The global coverage, high readiness, non-intrusive forward presence, and responsiveness of space forces enable them to provide real-time and near-real-time support for the full range of military operations in peace, crisis, and across the entire spectrum of conflict.
