  • CSpOC offers opportunity for deeper understanding of allied partners

    With more than 15 exchange and liaison officers assigned to various units across Vandenberg SFB, there is a good chance that U.S. military and civilians here will have the opportunity to interact with and work side-by-side with them at some point.

One of the first CFSCC units to make the move to Building 7000 included personnel from the 614th Air and Space Communications Squadron, which will be setting up computer workstations of more than 200 future occupants. About five years in the making, the construction project included a renovation of two older buildings in the complex and additional construction, all of which will now house the CFSCC headquarters staff and the Combined Space Operations Center.
  • From space traffic monitoring to human space flight rescue, Vandenberg units provide integral support to NASA missions

At Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., the Combined Force Space Component Command (CFSCC) and its subunit the Combined Space Operations Center (CSpOC) provide a variety of support to NASA missions, while also exemplifying how partnering with other military services and allies can benefit all.
  • 18 SPCS now predicts debris-on-debris collisions in space, enhancing Space Domain Awareness for all

    For the first time, the Combined Force Space Component Command’s 18th Space Control Squadron began publically sharing data for debris-on-debris conjunction predictions via www.Space-Track.org, Sept. 24. Previously, the 18 SPCS only released debris-on-active satellite conjunction prediction data publically due to limited conjunction screening and reporting capacity. Through a project titled Reduction of Conjunction Assessment Processing (ReCAP), 18 SPCS personnel reduced the daily number of legacy low to no-risk early conjunction reporting to satellite owners and operators by more than 30 percent. Additionally, the 18 SPCS increased the total number of objects screened daily by more than 350 percent.
