This Campaign Support Plan (CSP) seeks to implement my Planning Guidance to "Expand Cooperation to Enhance Prosperity and Security" in the space domain. It describes how the United States Space Force (USSF) will support Geographic Combatant Commands (GCCs) by organizing, training, equipping, and presenting a ready Space Force with an eye towards collaborative partnerships that yield decisive operational capabilities.

By using Security Cooperation (SC) and Service authorities to build upon existing and new allied, partner, civil, and commercial relationships, and capability areas, the USSF will preserve America's freedom of action in space, enable Joint Force lethality and effectiveness, and provide independent options in, from, and to space.

To maintain our competitive advantage in space, we must be bold. In line with my Planning Guidance, I encourage Guardians to accept moderate risk in evaluating partnership opportunities to increase our enterprise capability, capacity, and resilience.

To accomplish these objectives, I propose we execute a strategic, three-pronged approach along the following Lines of Effort (LOE):

EXPAND the network of allied, partner, civil, and commercial relationships by being the most reliable and trustworthy "partner of choice" in the space domain.

STRENGTHEN nascent allied, partner, civil, and commercial relationships to increase cooperation, collaboration, and interoperability in the space domain in order to yield a more resilient network and decisive effects.

LEVERAGE relationships with highly capable partners in operations and acquisitions to identify and close gaps in our space enterprise, reduce cost, increase resilience, and accelerate capability modernization.
