Form a Space Operations Force made up of an elite group of joint warfighters specializing in the space domain to "form the backbone" of the new service.

Vice President Mike Pence is expected to outline plans for President Trump's proposed new "space force" during remarks at the Pentagon on Thursday. Shortly after Pence's speech, Trump tweeted: "Space Force all the way!"

A report outlining the results of the study will be released later today.

That said, Congress doesn't appear to share Trump's and Pence's enthusiasm for a Space Force.

- Create a Space Development Agency to accelerate the development and fielding of technologies required for a Space Force. "Our adversaries have transformed space into a warfighting domain already and the United States will not shrink from this challenge", Pence said.

BRUMFIEL: President Trump suggested moving all that into a new sixth branch of the military back in June. China and Russian Federation have tested weapons that could be used for that goal: China destroyed one of its own satellites in a 2007 test, and Russian Federation revived its defunct space force in 2011.

Vice President Pence announces the Trump Administration's plan to create the U.S. Space Force by 2020 during a speech at the Pentagon on Thursday.

"Our administration will soon take action to implement these recommendations with the objective of establishing the United States Department of the Space Force by the year 2020", Pence added.

BRUMFIEL: China has also tested anti-satellite weapons. China and Russian Federation are the nation's primary rivals in space.

"Both nations are also investing heavily in what are known as hypersonic missiles created to fly up to 5 miles per second at such low altitudes that they could potentially evade detection by our missile defense radars", Pence said. "But history proves that peace only comes through strength", he added. Congress would have to approve any plan to make the Space Force a new branch.

When the proposal for a separate force was launched a year ago, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis resisted it. The new force would likely be carved out a chunk of the Air Force, creating two smaller, weaker services, according to military analysts. A full-fledged space force would cost significantly more, but no one knows how much yet.

"It is time to write the next chapter in the history of our armed forces to prepare for the next battlefield where the best and fearless Americans will be called upon to prevent and defeat a new wave of threats against our people and our nation "Pence said in a speech to the military at the Pentagon".

Previously, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis opposed a new military branch because of the price tag; a new branch of the military would require bureaucracy, equipment, uniforms and more.

Ultimately, Congress must establish the new department, the vice president said.
