Todd Harrison, director of the Aerospace Security Project at CSIS, discusses the debate in Congress about how the military’s space administration will work with a “Space Force.”


Members of the congressional Armed Services committees agree that space should be a national security focus, but the structure that will take is less clear. Todd Harrison, director of the Aerospace Security Project at CSIS, says that there are numerous opinions on the subject in Congress.   “The truth is, there are a lot of different answers depending on who you talk to. For me, the most compelling argument is we have an organize, train and equip problem when it comes to space,” Harrison said. “There’s no central authority, it is fragmented across the services and the intel community and what the Space Force would do is integrate all of those different space-related components across the services into one unified chain of command where you have someone in charge. That’s one of the most compelling reasons.
