2014 – U.S. National Security Space Budgets

The DoD’s space budget of $## billion, ##% of the total U.S. space budget, covers programs overseen by the military services and at least two major but clandestine organizations: the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). The very natures of the NRO and NGA allow the DoD to classify not just program details, but program budgets, making it difficult to know the share of the DoD’s budget each one receives. The top five unclassified military space programs funded in 2014 were the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV), Global Positioning System (GPS), Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS), Advanced EHF (AEHF), and Space Fence.

Also, information on many aspects of military space spending is not publicly available, especially for sensitive programs such as spy satellites. Despite these challenges, military space spending is estimated using a methodology that combines public data with estimates for areas where data is not available. For example, total U.S. military space spending in fiscal year 2013 is calculated by applying the growth in identifiable DoD unclassified military space programs to the FY 2012 total DoD space spending figure.

2012 – U.S. National Security Space Budgets

Global military space spending is significant, but difficult to quantify. There are often major differences in how governments identify civil government versus military spending. Also, information on many aspects of military space spending is not publicly available. Despite these challenges, military space spending is estimated for this report using a methodology that combines public data with estimates for areas where data is not available. For example, total U.S. military space spending in fiscal year 2012 is calculated by applying the growth in identifiable DoD unclassified military space programs to the FY 2011 total DoD space spending figure. The 2011 figure is based on public statements made by top DoD space officials.
