Heather Wilson, Dave Goldfein: US Ready to Demonstrate Readiness to Counter Adversary Threats

U.S. Air Force officials noted that the nation is prepared to demonstrate space capabilities to adversaries to show readiness to react to threats, Defense News reported Wednesday.

“That capability needs to be one that’s understood by your adversary. They need to know that there are certain things we can do, at least at some broad level,” said Air Force Secretary and 2019 Wash100 Award winner Heather Wilson during the recent Space Symposium in Colorado.

Gen. Dave Goldfein the Air Force’s chief of staff, said the service intends to conduct rapid development and fielding of technologies capable of countering adversary systems regardless of time and space. According to Jay Raymond, commander of the Air Force Space Command, there are ongoing efforts to collaborate with allies such as Japan and Norway.
