Commander's Intent

USSTRATCOM's campaign sets conditions across the globe as the ultimate guarantor of national and allied security. USSTRATCOM's forces and capabilities underpin and enable all other Joint Force operations. We will pursue the command's objectives of deterring aggression and coercion, enhancing alliances and partnerships, enhancing readiness today and delivering the force of the future in these ways: 

  • Demonstrating: USSTRATCOM deters catastrophic actions from adversaries and poses an immediate threat to any actor who questions U.S. resolve by demonstrating our capabilities. 
  • Engaging: USSTRATCOM strengthens relationships by engaging military, government, allied, academic, non-governmental and commercial entities that contribute toward campaign and alliance objectives.
  • Preparing: USSTRATCOM retains its U.S. global military posture and readiness by effectively integrating joint and coalition capabilities to achieve mission success, while reducing vulnerabilities to its forces and capabilities.
