Space Is A Significant Growth Area For Kirtland AFB
There are three organizations involved with US Space Force, on Kirtland AFB:
- The Space Vehicles Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory
- The Directed Energy Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory
- The Space Rapid Capabilities Office (SpRCO) which reports directly to the Chief Space Operations who reports to the Secretary of the Air Force.
These units involve both Research and Development organizations and Operational units and are working together closely with a synergy worth attention. Space is a frontier which will continue to undergo significant growth, and the Kirtland Partnership Committee will participate as appropriate to help that growth.
