In concurrence with Pence's speech, the Pentagon laid out its plans to form the new branch of the United States military in a 15-page report, identifying immediate steps of action.
Creating a sixth branch of the United States military to oversee space defense - a Space Force -could spur technological innovation, but could just as likely cause disruption among organizations tasked with defending USA military and commercial interests in orbit, according to Margaret E. Kosal, an associate professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Second, the report calls for the establishment of a Space Operations Force - an elite group of joint warfighters, specializing in the domain of space, who will form the backbone of the nation's newest armed service. Pence described space as a domain that was once peaceful and uncontested but has now become crowded and adversarial.
Citing Russia and China, he said that for years USA adversaries have "pursued weapons to jam, blind and disable our navigation and communication satellites via electronic attacks from the ground".
To sum up, the Space Force is officially the sixth branch of military service.
Pence said on Thursday that it was an idea "whose time had come" and made clear that the White House wants to get on with the project as soon as possible.
"History proves that peace only comes through strength, and in the realm of outer space, the United States Space Force will be that strength in the years ahead", he added.

Built like a boxing heavyweight, no-one could lay a glove on him on this course that plays into the hands of the big hitters. At times he looked and seemed and played younger than his age on a day when he had to play 29 holes in unbearable heat.
"We're building bipartisan support for our plan", he said.
"There is a threat out there but it's being handled by the U.S. Air Force today". There's one that says "Mars Awaits", even though, as The Hill points out, the proposed military branch is about defense, not exploration.
Those, by the way, aren't the first logos designed for Space Force.
However, although Pentagon leaders, including U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, once opposed the idea of a Space Force, they lined up on Thursday to offer their support.
The Space Force will be a separate military branch that requires congressional approval.
The Trump campaign has proven itself skillful at merchandising, with their red baseball cap emblazoned with the campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" becoming one of the most omnipresent symbols of the 2016 United States presidential campaign. The Space Command will be led by a four-star general to oversee warfighting operations. And just hours later, an official email went out to supporters from Brad Parscale, President Trump's reelection campaign manager, asking Americans to vote on the newSpace Force logo. "So we need more integration, not pulling it apart into a separate entity".
Pence in his speech askedCongress to approve $8bn over five years for space security systems, but a freestanding Space Force would likely cost far more than that.
