据c4isrnet网2020年6月11日报道,6月11日,美参院委员会发布法案摘要,敦促对一系列与美国天军部队有关法规提供详细信息。

例如,要求空军部在将任何基地移交天军之前向国会提交分析报告,并就如何确定航天司令部总部的程序和标准提交报告。

并要求参联会主席和军种参谋长就哪些航天相关业务将移交天军报道提交报告。

天军目前包括航天与导弹系统中心,负责监督绝大部分航天相关采办业务。

法案摘要提出,在提出详细分析报告之前,将不会做出设立“航天国民警卫队”的决定。

Four reports a Senate panel wants to see on Space Force

A Senate committee wants more information before taking action on a host of U.S. Space Force-related provisions, and as a result an early version of the chamber’s annual defense legislation calls for a series of relevant reports according to a summary released June 11.

For instance, the legislation would require the Department of the Air Force to submit an analysis to Congress before any bases are transferred into the Space Force. Similarly, the Air Force would need to provide a report on the selection process and criteria used to determine a permanent Space Command headquarters. The Air Force recently reopened the competition for municipalities seeking to become the new home of Space Command with three main criteria based on population, proximity to an existing military base and a livability score of at least 50 based on AARP’s Public Policy Institute.

Proposals are due June 30, and a final decision is expected in early 2021.

Another provision requires a report from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the service chiefs before deciding which space-related missions are moved into the Space Force. While the Space Force currently includes the Space and Missile Systems Center — which oversees most space-related acquisition — the other services also have their own space efforts.

Additionally, the legislation would not establish a Space National Guard—something National Guard leadership has called for—until a study on the matter is completed. Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett has stated that the Space Force is not rushing to establish a National Guard component. In the interim, the legislation would establish a Space Force reserve component, although no further details were available in the summary.

The draft legislation, however, will take some actions on the Space Force without requiring new studies, including the authorization of voluntary transfers of personnel into the new service. It does not make any reference to the Air Force’s recent proposal to overhaul space-related acquisitions, which was required under legislation passed in December.

The summary further suggests that the legislation will promote long term growth for the national security space sector by encouraging the establishment of a space training and readiness command, continuing development of a space technology base, and directing further collaboration with research institutions to build infrastructure and a workforce base.

Finally, the legislation will apparently authorize increased funding for space domain awareness, launch development, and space-based surveillance capability, though no specific numbers were provided.
