Gen. John Hyten, head of the Air Force Space Command, has outlined the command’s primary priorities as indicated in its updated strategic intent document that serves as the command’s overall guide.
The document calls for AFSPC to outperform the enemies, boost military readiness for future hostile scenarios and look after the welfare of the airmen and their families, the Air Force said Monday.
“More than ever, AFSPC is called upon to deliver agile, integrated, and resilient effects in, from, and through space and cyberspace that are critical to fulfilling these strategic demands,” noted Hyten.
He stressed that all military operations depend on “integrated space and cyberspace effects to accomplish national objectives” and “achieve agile information superiority.”
The updated strategic intent also calls for the U.S. Air Force to adopt integrated multi-domain operations in order to coordinate space and cyberspace assets with assets from all domains to achieve combat mission goals.
Hyten also urged commanders to protect the airmen and their families and recognized the stress brought about by war, deployments and budget uncertainty to Air Force families.
