Pence: "The time has come to establish the United States Space Force".
"Both nations are also investing heavily in what are known as hypersonic missiles created to fly up to 5 miles per second at such low altitudes that they could potentially evade detection by our missile defense radars", Pence said.
Trump said last week that he had ordered the Pentagon to begin the process of creating a Space Force as a new branch of the military.
"America will always seek peace, in space as on earth", Pence said.
Mr Trump "knows that space is integral to our American way of life and economic prosperity and is a vital domain for national defence" while, under his direction, the USA is "reclaiming its heritage as the world's greatest space-faring nation", the White House said. Space is vital to the way the United States wages war; The Pentagon's satellites are used for missile-defence warnings, guiding precision munitions, and providing communications and reconnaissance.
"We must have American dominance in space", the president said at the time.
But the calls for a separate military branch have been met with strong reluctance in some parts of the Pentagon amid concerns that it doesn't need the burdens of a new bureaucracy.
It's going to take a lot more than a few grandiose speeches from Trump and Pence in order for the Space Force idea to come to fruition, though.
The Space Force aims to organise, train, and quip people in the interest of space-related national security.
Congressional approval would be needed to stand up an entirely new military branch. The US Space Force will become the sixth arm. And some officials within the military and national security communities fiercely oppose the idea. "It's risky to have a leader who can not be talked out of insane ideas". "America and our allies emerged victorious from World War II because of the strength of our armed forces and because our armed forces adapted to meet the emerging threats of the day".
"It's not enough to have an American presence in space", Pence said Thursday in a speech at the Pentagon.
The report lays out four steps that it will take to start the reorganization the military with a goal of creating a fully independent Space Force within a few years, depending on how quickly Congress moves to pass legislation.
It would require a new headquarters and major organisational changes.
The Pentagon's report was welcomed by some members of Congress. The Air Force now oversees some of the most critical space-based capabilities.
But just previous year, Mattis voiced skepticism on the need to create a separate Space Force.
In just two years the U.S. plans to have a new military programme geared towards space.
"In his inaugural address to the nation, President Trump declared that the United States stands 'at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, '" Pence said.
