The National Space Council will discuss proposals to establish a space-dedicated service branch at a meeting scheduled for Oct. 23, Space News reported Monday.
Vice President Mike Pence said in a tweet that the meeting will cover existing progress and steps leading to the development of a Space Force.
Members of the council will meet at the National Defense University. The meeting follows a previous one in June where President Trump first introduced the Space Force formation plan.
The upcoming assembly marks the National Space Council's fourth public meeting.
