Newly Issued Space Forces Sustainment Doctrine

Bill Kobren
For those who may not have already seen it, permit me to call your attention to the newly issued December 2022 “Space Doctrine Publication (SDP) 4-0, Sustainment Doctrine for Space Forces”.

“According to the new SDP 4-0, “this doctrine provides official advice and describes the parameters to execute and leverage spacepower utilizing its core competencies. It is not directive—rather, it provides Guardians an informed starting point for decision making and mission execution. Space Doctrine Publication (SDP) 4-0, Sustainment, aligns with current Space Force doctrine and the Chief of Space Operations’ Planning Guidance. It articulates extant best practices and lessons learned for sustainment of space forces…. This publication presents the United States Space Force’s (USSF) current body of knowledge pertaining to the sustainment of space forces and capabilities. It provides the Guardian’s perspective on the best way to approach sustainment of operations in the space domain throughout the competition continuum. It also identifies considerations for interaction with governmental and nongovernmental agencies, multinational forces, and other interorganizational partners.”
