The Combined Force Space Component Command hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony in front of its new headquarters building on Vandenberg Space Force Base, Calif., Aug. 2, 2021.  Following a presentation of a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition by Wendy Motta, a representative for Congressman Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara), CFSCC commander Major General DeAnna Burt welcomed guests and spoke of the benefits of having this central location for space operations.

Prior to the opening of this building, CFSCC headquarters and the CSpOC were working out of three separate buildings to accomplish its mission of coordinating command and control of space effects to joint forces and allied partners.

“With today’s ceremony we are finally able to conduct space operations in a central location, with joint, coalition and commercial agencies in this state-of-the-art facility you see behind me,” said Burt.  “The refurbishment of this facility was not a small feat.  From concept to operational capability it, took approximately seven years and it was truly a team effort to make this happen – across Space Delta 5, Space Launch Delta 30, Combined Force Space Component Command, Headquarters Space Operations Command and United States Space Force staff.”
