Gen. John Hyten,

Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

[The United States Space Force] is a bi-partisan issue with support from both parties and it’s supported because the threat is out there, and we have to respond immediately to the threat that’s there. It’s also why we have a National Security Space Association that’s stood up to remember that we need to continue to push those issues.


Americans depend on the security guaranteed by U.S. superiority in space. From surveillance and missile warning to navigation, timing and disaster management, they help keep us safe. But nothing is guaranteed. It’s time to stand up for our country’s future and defend the national security space domain. NSSA is committed to shaping a vibrant national security space enterprise and cultivating a network that fosters dynamic collaboration for the greater good of our nation and our allies. We believe in supporting and advancing long-term U.S. government and private sector cooperation with independent and trusted perspectives, expert opinion, insight-driven strategy, thought-provoking studies, and data-driven analytics. We’re here to move the needle with industry partners, government officials, colleges and universities, and the public. And inspire the next generation to pursue careers in national security space with our pipeline programs. We will lead the way forward.


The U.S. has invested for over a half-century to ensure world leadership in national security space. While the U.S. still maintains a substantial advantage, that margin has eroded in recent years. Refocusing our efforts to regain those losses is paramount. Industry has always played a vital role in U.S. world leadership in National Security Space and it’s important that we continue to foster its growth. Our nation’s security depends on its reliable and protected space systems and now is the time to work together to lead the way forward.
