Japan's "Air Self-Defense Force" is about to be renamed. The new name is "Aerospace Self-Defense Force."

On January 5, Japan ’s “Yomiuri Shimbun” released an exclusive news saying that the Japanese government is preparing to change the name “Aeronautical Self-Defense Force” to “Aerospace Self-Defense Force”, which will be completed as soon as 2021. .

The Yomiuri Shimbun said the name change was the first change since the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force was founded in 1954. The core purpose of this rename is to add the concept of "cosmic space" to the mission of the Air Self-Defense Force, making it clear that "cosmic space" is also a part of the defense field; in addition, it is necessary to strengthen Japan's defense capabilities and control in "cosmic space" .

It is reported that Japan is working towards the goal of completing the name change as early as 2021. The Air Self-Defense Force currently has a capacity of about 47,000. Some of these tasks, such as security surveillance, can be unmanned in the future, and about three human forces saved will be sent to perform space tasks. In 2020, the Air Self-Defense Force will first create a 20-person "Space Combat Team (tentative name)"; the Self-Defense Force's first "Space Force" is planned to expand to 120 in 2023 and begin space surveillance task. Eventually, Japan will launch satellites into space around 2026 to monitor space targets such as suspicious satellites.

In fact, the name change of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force has long been a precursor. As early as September 17, last year, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said at a meeting of senior self-defense cadres held by the Ministry of Defense, "It is not a dream to develop into an aerospace self-defense force."
