WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will create a "space force" to ensure US hegemony in this area as the threat from China and Russia mounts, US Vice President Mike Bens said.
"It is time to write a new chapter in the history of our armed forces and prepare for the next battlefield where the Americans, the best and the bravest, will be called upon to avoid and overcome a new wave of threats to our people and our nation," Bens said.
He said it was time to create the US space force, stressing President Donald Trump's call for Congress to invest an additional $ 8 billion in US space security systems over the next five years.
Pence's comments represent the first step to creating a sixth branch of the US military by 2020, which President Trump has expressed his desire to establish, so that Washington confirms through this step that it "controls space."
Last June, Trump ordered the creation of a space force and said the Pentagon needed it to address vulnerabilities in space, noting that the new force would be responsible for a range of US military capabilities in space.
These capabilities include everything from GPS satellites to sensors that help monitor rocket launches.
The creation of the new force requires the consent of the divided Congress. Opponents argue that the creation of an unnecessary, expensive and useless space force is compared to the establishment of the Air Force in 1947.
On the other hand, supporters of allocating more resources to a space force or space leadership argue that US rivals such as Russia and China are increasingly preparing to strike US space capabilities in case of conflict.
The US military consists of five branches - ground forces, navy, air and marines - as well as the Coast Guard.
The United States is a member of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which prohibits the deployment of weapons of mass destruction in space.
