The United States Space Force (USSF) is a space force that was organized by the United States Department of Defense (DoD), under the Reagan administration in the early eighties. It began with the establishment of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) in 1984, nicknamed "Star Wars" by the media. The militarized space program was comprised of, at the very least, the Air Force Space Command (1982), the Naval Space Command (1983), and the United States Space Command (1985).

In 2000, Donald Rumsfeld proposed reforms to reorganize and consolidate the DoD’s space-related activities—policy, acquisition, and operations—under the Undersecretary of the Air Force, who would act as the Department’s Executive Agent for Space.[1] Whereas, President Donald Trump proposed in 2018, that the United States Space Force be a sixth branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.[2]

The development of the US Space Force is as a direct result of “Solar Warden”, after entering into contract February 1954. Solar Warden is a private entity that is not the property of the United States.
