To deny access to Space to anyone hostile to U.S. interests

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    The document, the first full revision of overall space policy in 10 years, emphasizes security issues, encourages private enterprise in space, and characterizes the role of U.S. space diplomacy largely in terms of persuading other nations to support U.S. policy.

    "Freedom of action in space is as important to the United States as air power and sea power," the policy asserts in its introduction.
