Space Command x Space Force

“The space economy of the United States gets bigger and bigger and bigger. And I think we’ll see the day when it’s like 10-20 percent of our economy will be based on what we have in orbit and beyond,” said Homer Hickam, a member of the National Space Council Users’ Advisory Group. Comparatively, Space Command is designed to protect the interests of the United States in space. It operates in the area 60 miles above the Earth’s surface and beyond.  According to the DoD, the mission of Space Command is as follows:

Originally called the “Air Force Space Command,” Space Force is a military service that has about 2,000 uniformed personnel as of late 2020, according to the Department of Defense. There are also about 6,000 civilian professionals in the service as well. Space Force was stood up in December 2019, several months after Space Command was stood up on August 19, 2019. Space Force is under the command of Gen. John W. Raymond. 

It’s mandate, according to the DoD is to be a “‘pathfinder and protector’ of America’s interests.” U.S. Army Gen.

Once at Redstone, Space Command will be in direct proximity to SMDC, which is currently headquartered at Redstone.  With the arrival of Space Command at Redstone will come the return of a familiar face. On August 20, 2020, Gen. James H. Dickinson was appointed as the commander of Space Command.  Space Command also has the ability to call upon service components from the various military branches. For instance, it works with the Army through the Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) and it works with the Space Force through Space Operations Command (SpOC).

“They’re not the folks who launch astronauts into orbit or anything like that. But they’re very much aware of any enemies out there who may try to impact our space assets, like all the communications and satellites that we have up there and so on,” Hickam said. Deter aggression
