(FOX NEWS) – President Donald Trump formally announced the re-establishment of the U.S. Space Command on Thursday after a 17-year absence as his administration focuses on concerns about the vulnerability of U.S. satellites.

“Just as we have recognized land, air, sea and cyber as vital warfighting domains, we will now treat space as an independent region overseen by a new unified geographic combatant command,” Trump said during a ceremony at the White House Rose Garden.

The Senate confirmed Air Force four-star Gen. John “Jay” Raymond to lead U.S. Space Command this past June.

He has been leading the Air Force Space Command.

The new Space Command is expected to draw on other parts of the armed forces.

“Unfortunately, our adversaries have had a front-row seat into our many successes and have seen the advantages that they provide us,” Raymond said during his Senate confirmation hearing.

“And, to be honest, they don’t like what they see., and they’re rapidly developing capabilities to negate our use of space and to negate the advantage that space provides.”
