National Security Space Strategy is at a juncture with tremendously complex changing environments, global threats, phenomenally successful/unsuccessful space systems, and a perceived need to change. Our NSS Strategy started fifty years ago with President Eisenhower’s two basic principles: Freedom of Space and Space for Peaceful Purposes. This community concentrated on three strategies to ensure their successes. The essence of the NSS Strategy, for 50 years, boiled down to acquiring the best technological solutions, locating them at the strategic high ground locations, operating them with the strategic and tactical operations in mind, and ensuring that the capabilities were sustained. This set of authors looked back in time; viewing our successes and failures; and, suggest a movement forward to stimulate a better understanding of the strengths of a NSS Strategy.
