The House passed a conferenced version of the NDAA, which includes a roadmap for building the Space Force. Todd Harrison, director of the CSIS Aerospace Security Project, says that there are many questions that still need to be answered.
“You have all of these space-related positions all over Air Force Space Command that you are going to transfer over… they are not filled by career space operators, like doing space acquisitions. You may have people that have done aircraft acquisitions their entire career. They’re assigned for one tour doing space acquisitions. Do you transfer them? That is a big question.”
