What does perspective mean in relation to space power?
The space domain’s increased perspective of the battlespace further enables capabilities to extend beyond the terrestrial horizon. Exploiting the benefits of space-based systems enables long range secure satellite communications (SATCOM); precision manoeuvre and strike using global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), eg Global Positioning System (GPS), and an information advantage from intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) satellites.
Space missions provide a whole-of theatre perspective permitting the joint force to observe and dominate surface activities and enhance decision superiority.

AFDN 1-19 Air-Space Integration – Doctrine
The Air Power and Space Power Centre has prepared this doctrine note to enable members to understand the fundamental benefits and constraints of using space effects to support ADF operations. I encourage you to read this doctrine note with a view to better understand your role in a space-enabled military organisation. Empower yourself to contribute to the thinking and concepts that are regularly being reviewed to assure that the current and future designs for Air Force will continue to reliably deliver the air and space power needed.
