US Increases Military Space Budget

After China's January ASAT Test, the US Congress has plans to increase military space funding. The House bill increases the Pentagon’s 2008 budget request by 1/3 for the Operationally Responsive Space program.

ORS's mission is to develop a system that can quickly launch low cost satellites to replace damaged satellites or to quickly increase US space capabilities for a military operation.

The Senate Armed Services Committee bill plans to double the funding for space situational awareness programs.
