The nomination of Frank Kendall to become secretary of the Air Force is moving again after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took off her hold on his nomination. One of his new jobs if the Senate confirms him could be to shape the entire Defense Department’s space enterprise.

  • Matthew Donovan, director of the Spacepower Advantage Research Center at the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies, said the multiple disparate organizations that share in space equities, research and development, acquisition and operations are preventing Space Force effectiveness and efficiency in development of space capabilities, integrated space operations and expenditure of funds.
  • Donovan said the consolidation of all military space capabilities into the Space Force is off to a slow start, in part because of parochial attitudes in the services and agencies.
  • Donovan said there needs to be a roles and missions review across the Defense Department to optimize America’s military for major threats.
