      Space Force

      (Wikipedia)  De United States Space Force (USSF) is het onderdeel van de Amerikaanse strijdkrachten dat verantwoordelijk is voor de oorlogsvoering in de ruimte.

      Op 18 juni 2018 ondertekende president Donald Trump het Space Policy Directive-3 waarin besloten werd tot de oprichting van de Space Force, die de rol van de Air Force Space Command overnam.

      De USSF werd opgericht op 20 december 2019. Het is het zesde afzonderlijke krijgsmachtonderdeel van de Amerikaanse strijdkrachten en het eerste dat werd opgericht sind de United States Air Force (USAF) in 1947. Generaal John W. Raymond werd op 14 januari 2020 beëdigd als eerste commandant van de USSF met de titel Chief of Space Operations.

      Interessant is de logo / mission badge van bv Space System Command. hieronder de uitleg van de badge en het nieuwsbericht, waar het zichtbaar  was

      Logo (Nederlands):  Space Systems Command embleem en kleur
      Bovenaan het ontwerp, dat de ruimte in stijgt, bevindt zich een delta die op een ontstekingspluim rijdt. De delta en pluim vertegenwoordigen de lanceervoertuigen die nodig zijn om Space Force-middelen in een baan om de aarde te brengen en duiden lanceringsoperaties aan vanaf de west- en oostkust. Het sterrenbeeld Aquila symboliseert de ruimteomgeving en weerspiegelt de ontwikkeling en inzet van Space Systems Command op het gebied van ruimteoorlogsgevechten. De primaire ster vertegenwoordigt de mogelijkheden van de Space Force in een baan om de aarde. De uitgestrekte baan en bliksemschicht vertegenwoordigen de ruimtemiddelen van de Space Force die de aarde beschermen.[22]

      Goud is de onderscheidende kleur van Space Systems Command en staat voor de uitmuntendheid en intelligentie die nodig zijn om innovatieve ruimtecapaciteiten te identificeren, prototypen en in de praktijk te brengen

      Logo explanationSpace Systems Command emblem and color[edit]
      At the top of the design, rising into space, is a delta riding on an ignition plume. The delta and plume represent the launch vehicles need to place Space Force assets into orbit and signifies launch operations from West and East coast ranges. The constellation Aquila symbolizes the space environment, reflecting Space Systems Command’s developing and fielding of space warfighting capabilities. The primary star represents the Space Force’s on-orbit capabilities. The sweeping orbit and thunderbolt represent the Space Force’s space assets safeguarding the Earth.[22]

      Gold is Space Systems Command’s distinguishing color and signifying the excellence and intelligence required to identify, prototype, and field innovative space capabilities.[23]

      The Space Systems Command emblem and flag were unveiled on 13 April 2021, replacing the Space and Missile Systems Center emblem.

      “EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Space Systems Command (SSC) has achieved numerous milestones in the year since it was stood up as a U.S. Space Force (USSF) Field Command on Aug. 13, 2021.

      As the Command responsible for rapidly developing, acquiring, equipping, fielding and sustaining lethal and resilient space capabilities, SSC and its team of military, civilian and contractor personnel are laser-focused on staying ahead of the rapidly expanding adversarial threats in space.

      “I’ve been impressed with what SSC has been able to accomplish with regard to changing the face of government space acquisition,” said Frank Calvelli, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Space Acquisition and Integration.

      “By creating a unity of effort, building partnerships and delivering space capabilities on time and within budget, our warfighters have what they need to stay ahead of our adversaries and our nation’s assured access to space remains intact,” Calvelli said. “It is time to bring fresh energy to acquisitions and SSC is a critical part of that effort.”

      With an $11 billion budget, SSC now includes five program executive offices: Assured Access to Space; Communications & Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT); Space Sensing; Battle Management Command, Control & Communications (BMC3); and Space Domain Awareness and Combat Power. This reorganization has changed the focus at SSC from managing systems to managing capabilities from development through sustainment, as well as providing synergy with the warfighter.

      Four program executive officers oversee these mission areas and the full lifecycles of all SSC programs — with the goal to have fully resilient space capabilities by 2026. <…>

      Unarmed Minuteman III test launch to showcase readiness of U.S. nuclear force’s safe, effective deterrent

      https://www.vandenberg.spaceforce.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/3127721/unarmed-minuteman-iii-test-launch-to-showcase-readiness-of-us-nuclear-forces-sa/

      VANDENBERG SPACE FORCE BASE, Calif. –A scheduled, operational test launch of an Air Force Global Strike Command unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile is planned for Tuesday, Aug. 16 from 12:01 a.m. to 6:01 a.m. Pacific Time from north Vandenberg.

      This test is routine and was scheduled years in advance. Consistent with previous test launches, this ICBM test launch will validate and verify the effectiveness, readiness and accuracy of the weapon system.

      In accordance with standard procedures, the United States has transmitted a pre-launch notification pursuant to the Hague Code of Conduct, and notified the Russian government in advance, pursuant to New START obligations.

      The purpose of the ICBM test launch program is to demonstrate the readiness of U.S. nuclear forces and provide confidence in the lethality and effectiveness of the nation’s nuclear deterrent, according to Air Force Global Strike Command.
