This strategy directly supports the integrated National Space Strategy which was published in September 2021. It sets out the government’s vision for Defence as a global actor in the space domain and articulates how MOD will deliver the Protect and Defend goal through space-related capabilities, operations and partnerships, delivering against the ambition to become a meaningful actor in space.
MOD will focus its attention to deliver space capabilities to protect and defend UK interests in support of global military operations. UK priorities are to:
- Enhance understanding of the threats and hazards in, from, or through space.
- Deliver high-quality information and intelligence in real time from space to the military.
- Deliver the first in a series of constellations of novel sensors to track targets on Earth.
- Understand, design and field technologies to protect and defend UK interests in or from space.
