United States Space Command (USSPACECOM) conducts operations in, from, and to space to deter conflict, and if necessary, defeat aggression, deliver space combat power for the Joint/Combined force, and defend U.S. vital interests with allies and partners.
The USSPACECOM mission involves four distinct areas of focus:
Deter Aggression: USSPACECOM strengthens our national deterrence through the provision of space warfighting options that preserve the U.S. and Allied competitive advantage while promoting security and stability to ensure conflict does not begin or migrate into the space domain.
Defeat our Nation's Enemies through Posture and Preparedness: Should deterrence fail, USSPACECOM is postured to rapidly transition from competition to conflict and achieve space superiority with the world's premier joint space warfighters to defeat our nation's enemies.
Deliver Space Combat Power: USSPACECOM enhances warfighting readiness and lethality through the integration of space capabilities with the joint force, allies, and inter-agency partners in all domains.
Defend U.S., Allied and Partner Interests: USSPACECOM, in coordination with Allies, the joint force, and inter-agency partners, conduct combined space operations to protect our combined interests and secure critical capabilities.
