The United States intends to place military personnel in space. This was stated by the head of the Space Forces command of space operations, Major General John Shaw. He immediately indicated that the timing of such changes has not been determined, writes Air Force Magazine.
“At some point, yes, we will send people into space. They could operate command centers in the lunar environment or elsewhere,” the publication quotes Shaw.
The American also said that if military facilities worked in a partially autonomous mode, then there was no need to spend human resources to monitor them.
The foremost goal of the US Space Force in this regard is the deployment of satellites that can control themselves and maneuver in the event of a threat.
