STARCOM HQ Location Selection Process is in Review

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, September 2, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Space Force Association (SFA) believes that the process of bidding on the location for STARCOM HQ should be open and fair to all states. Permitting more states to house SF Bases and Deltas allows for additional congressional representatives and senators, as well as, states and municipalities to learn more about the mission and necessity of Space Force Operations. STARCOM is one of three U.S. Space Force field commands and focuses on education and training of Space Professionals: including tactics, techniques, and procedures. 

The process for selecting a STARCOM HQ location began in April of 2022. Initial plans were to limit the selection to current Space Force bases. However, the bi-partisan congressional delegation from Texas and other states have petitioned the administration to open the bidding and include states interested in hosting STARCOM. The selection process is currently being reviewed.

The United States Space Force News published an article identifying the current six candidates and information regarding the structure and five space Deltas related to the mission of STARCOM. CLICK HERE to review the article.

SFA will continue to share information on the selection process and final outcome.
