The Air Force has requested about
$6.5 billion for its space investment portfolio in Fiscal 2014, including some $2.7
billion for research, development, test, and evaluation activities and another
$3.8 billion for procurement of satellite systems and associated ground assets,
service budget officials told defense reporters on April 15, 2013. Here, a United
Launch Alliance Delta IV rocket is shown at Cape Canaveral AFS, Fla. The
