I received this information by email today: (information info written on) 13 July 05:

ICD for Small Unit Space Transport and Insertion (Sustain)
- Defines Capacity for JFC to Rapidly Transport Strategic Capabilities to Any Point on Globe
- Addresses Rapid Employment of Tailored Expeditionary Forces from CONUS Including Use of National Security Space (NSS)

Material Approaches
1. Increased Forward Presence
2. Evolutionary Improvements to Conventional Assault Support
3. Revolutionary Improvements to Terrestrial Aviation Capabilities
4. Space Insertion-Terrestrial Extraction
5. Space Insertion and Extraction with Refueling
6. Space Insertion and Extraction without Refueling

Marine BGen Richard C Zilmer, Commander 29 Palms Training Command:
“We briefed the Pentagon, Congress, USSOCOM, and the NSC and were never thrown out. 25-30 years from now the idea is to move a squad-sized unit of Marines to any place on Earth in less than two hours.”

HOT EAGLE Incrementally Addresses Multiple Capabilities
- Affordable, Reliable Spacelift
- Global or Theater ISR
- Space to Space ISR
- Space Interdiction and Control
- Force Application to Space
- Force Application to Globe
- Space Insertion of Personnel
- Global Insertion of Personnel

Multiple Options Evaluated
- Space Insertion – Terrestrial Extraction
- Forward Deployment Space Insertion and Extraction
- Limited Range Space Insertion and Extraction Without Refueling
- Near Space Revolutionary Improvements to Terrestrial Aviation Capabilities
- Revolutionary Improvements to Terrestrial Aviation Capabilities Limited Range and Space Insertion and Extraction
- Space Insertion and Extraction With Refueling
- Space Insertion and Extraction Without Refueling
