A general and the highest-ranking officer of the United States Space Force, Jay Raymond claimed that the Air Force was considered the major service that is accountable for DoD space specification, required to implement a path to meet the operational demand for space capabilities on the fastest timelines. He stated that instead of handling operational as well as strategical-level commanders as a low need in the whole national space plan, this new business model formulates a capability to fulfill their certain warfighting requirements.

Raymond added that this newest perspective can integrate and involve national space capabilities. Reportedly, 17 years behind, and along with Mr. Raymond now leading the recently developed Space Force, the department is still operating in requirements and commences to halt the business case for that perspective. In that period, the Pentagon generated and stopped an Operationally Responsive Space(ORS) office devoted to building an on-demand launch capability that could expand or reform existing satellite constellations.

Despite several lawmakers generating a fundamental Tactically Responsive Space launch program and granting tens of millions of dollars to finance it, the Space Force has not yet prioritized or finalized a budget for the efforts, depending on congressional involvement to examine demonstrations. In 2007, the Air Force built the ORS office which is accountable for implementing and meanwhile grabbing satellites and various other space capabilities. Some lawmakers involved a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act to generate an all-new Space Rapid Capabilities Office in that place.
