US Space Force Partners with Startups to Perform First Military Exercise in Orbit, Responding to Potential Threats of 'On-Orbit Aggression'

  • last month
The US Space Force is partnering with Rocket Lab and True Anomaly for a demonstration called "Victus Haze," which could be the first military exercise in orbit. The mission aims to demonstrate how the military might counter "on-orbit aggression," such as approaching or interfering with US satellites. The exercise seeks to develop capabilities to respond if adversaries put unknown satellites into space. It follows the Victus Nox mission that validated launching a replacement satellite within hours.
