A secret military program and a massive opportunity

A lot of people chuckled when the Space Force was first introduced – both officially and as a concept.

Even now, a lot of people still don’t understand what he is doing or is supposed to do.

They imagine it’s something like Star Wars, with spaceships firing at each other from lasers or conquering distant planets.

But that’s not it at all.

In reality, space is not the same kind of war domain that land, sea, and air are … not yet, anyway.

What space assets really do is provide logistical support.

The satellites above give a glimpse of how enemy forces are positioned. They reveal the location of supply depots, transportation networks and bases. They guide troops, ships and planes through hostile terrain. They even warn in advance of incoming assaults and missile launches.

This is exactly what happened in January 2020.

You may remember the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, who was killed by a drone strike near Baghdad airport.

Soleimani was notoriously elusive. He kept a low profile and strict security details.

However, the American drones were able to pinpoint its precise coordinates. And what’s more, they were able to have an hour and a half head start because that’s how far away the nearest drone base was, over 350 miles away.

Now, US officials have never said where they got their information from. They just said they were relying on “informants, electronic interceptions, reconnaissance planes and other surveillance. “

Given the wide reach and high quality of government satellite information, I think it’s fair to assume that’s what we’re talking about here.

However, we do not know this.

But here’s something we do know …

In the days following Soleimani’s murder, Iran prepared its retaliation. And on January 8, five days after the drone strike, Iran fired a barrage of 14 missiles at Iraq’s Al Asad air base, where US troops were stationed.

Hundreds of American soldiers could have been killed, which is exactly what Iran was counting on.

But they weren’t.

These soldiers survived because, according to Air Force Review, “The 20th Theater Missile Warning Company, part of the Army’s 1st Space Brigade, was in Qatar receiving direct downlink data from a Space Force constellation at the time of launch.”

Colonel Donald K. Brooks, commander of the 1st Space Brigade, told the magazine:

We had a specialist who was an E-4, sitting on the team leader that night … Long before those theater ballistic missiles were warheads at the Al Asad base, we had soldiers sitting down. in bunkers. This is where we work at the tactical, operational, [employing] strategic capabilities as the Space Force [provides].

Yes, in real time, an Army space specialist analyzed the Space Force warning data and determined the target of the strike attempt, the point of origin and even the type of missiles deployed.

The specialist alerted the detachment commander and took them to safety.

It’s a fact.

And this is not an isolated and random incident either.

Space Force satellites provide direct downlink data to 1st Space Brigade tactical ground stations around the world, in places like Italy, Qatar, South Korea and Japan.

Indeed, Air Force Review keep on going:

The 1st Space Brigade is dispersed over 16 sites in 10 countries, including 160 soldiers from CENTCOM, 140 from US Indo-Pacific Command and 150 from US European Command. Under the brigade are four missile warning companies and five missile defense batteries.

And these satellites and the information they provide are vital to military operations. They help maneuver ground troops, facilitate communication, time assaults, and scramble enemy communications.

Again, all of this to say that Space Force is no joke.

It’s not a futuristic novelty that’s somehow deferential to more traditional military branches like the military, air force, and navy.

It is co-equal. He is a much appreciated partner.

And it’s only just started.

This is why I am so interested in the companies that are lining up to help him in his mission.

You look at what companies like Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and others have become as a result of their relationship with the Pentagon, and you must realize that other new players are emerging to facilitate the future of wars. .

These are companies that will deliver massive returns over time. We are talking about 10 baggers.

I recently found such a company – an unannounced small space company that is already establishing a major relationship with the Space Force.

In fact, in two weeks he will be carrying out a test mission for the Space Force.

And if this mission is successful, the stock could double in value.

This is a tremendous opportunity, both in the short term and in the long term.

So I encourage you to read more about this in my full report.

Because this is only the start of a huge evolution.
