Space Force is designated as 18th member of Intel Community
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Friday announced the Space Force as the 18th member of the intelligence community, in a move to "break down barriers" to information sharing, and to help inform the community's analysis of threats in space.
Fox News has learned that Ratcliffe, on Friday, announced the designation of the U.S. Space Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Enterprise, which is the intelligence component of the Space Force.
"This accession reaffirms out commitment to securing outer space as a safe and free woman for America’s interests," Ratcliffe said Friday. "American power in space is stronger and more unified than ever before. Today we welcome Space Force to the Intelligence Community and look forward to the power and ingenuity of a space security team unrivaled by any nation."
"Through sharing space-related information and intelligence, the IC and DoD increase integration and coordination of our intelligence activities to achieve best effect and value in executing our missions," Ratcliffe said. "This move not only underscores the importance of space as a priority intelligence and military operational domain for national security, but ensures interoperability, future capability development and operations, and true global awareness for strategic warning."
The Space Force intelligence element is the first new organization to join the intelligence community since 2006, when the DEA’s Office of National Security Intelligence joined.
The move, according to ODNI, will break down barriers to information sharing and ensure that Space Force leaders have access to all intelligence that it would need to be successful.
The move also allows the intelligence community to have access to all operational space domain awareness that would help inform its analysis of threats in space.
Ratcliffe, at the National Space Council meeting last month, first signaled his intention to welcome the Space Force into the IC.

Biden decides to stick with Space Force as branch of U.S. military
President Joe Biden is looking at all policies put in place by Republican predecessor Donald Trump, with a view toward possibly rolling them back, but not so the U.S. Space Force.
"They absolutely have the full support of the Biden administration," White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Wednesday about the Space Force, a day after her dismissal of a question about the service suggested Biden was less than enthusiastic about it.
The Space Force was created as a separate branch of the U.S. military by Trump, who spoke enthusiastically about the need for a force to protect American interests in orbit and celebrated its new flag in an Oval Office ceremony.
Since it was carved out of the Air Force, there had been speculation that Biden might seek to send the Space Force back to where it was before and deny Trump a signature achievement.
But Biden has decided to keep what has been called the world's only independent space force, officially established in December 2019.
"We are not revisiting the decision to establish the Space Force," Psaki said.
I think the Air Force wanted this. That part of their 'area of responsibility' is becoming too complex and this move was largely administrative. Code for 'budgets'. Administrative, but damned amusing
Space Force acquisitions and tech division will be based in L.A. area
Makes sense, given that SoCal was the home of so many aerospace contractors over the decades.
