Joint Force Space Component commander staff to move to Schriever AFB

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Air Force officials announced Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, as the preferred location for the Joint Force Space Component staff.

This action, approved by the secretary of the Air Force, is part of a restructure of its components to build a coherent and streamlined warfighting structure which is expected to improve the nation's space warfighting effectiveness and ultimately enhance the lethality of U.S. joint forces.

The Air Force plans to move the staff, consisting of approximately 140 people, from Vandenberg AFB, California, to Schriever AFB so it is closer to the Joint Force Space Component commander and collocated with the National Space Defense Center.

In December, Gen. Jay Raymond assumed the JFSCC position, in addition to his position as commander for Air Force Space Command located at Peterson AFB, Colorado.

The staff supports the JFSCC, who is responsible for joint space operations to protect and defend the joint operations area and deliver assured theater and global effects in accordance with the U.S. Strategic Command commander's intent and national and combatant commander objectives.

Of the more than 140 positions that are moving, more than 100 are military and Department of Defense civilian positions. These are a joint mix of Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps positions. The remaining positions are contractor positions.

The staff's move from Vandenberg AFB will not impact the base's primary mission as the nation's critical west coast launch facility. Through the strategic basing process, the Air Force performed an analysis and a site survey and concluded moving to Schriever AFB offers the best option to meet requirements.
