The United States Space Force (USSF) is tasked with protecting and defending US interests in space. Until now, the limits of that mission have been in near Earth, out to approximately geostationary (GEO) range. With new US public and private sector operations extending into cislunar space, the reach of USSF’s sphere of interest will also extend to the Moon and beyond.
Below you can find several resources provided by the Air Force Research Laboratory on this opportunity.
