Report from Headquarters

Voice of the Commander

Written by: developer

Voice of the Commander Featured speaker and Strategic Space Symposium co-host* Gen. Kevin P. Chilton, USAF, commander, United States Strategic Command, set the tone for the Symposium with his “wish list” for space:

  • Improved space situational awareness through more data from better sensors, more tools to fuse the data, more displays to make decisions based upon the data, and better intelligence support and expertise to analyze the data.
  • Move away from managing gaps to building robustness in launch and acquisition capabilities and strategies.
  • New tools that allow troops to exercise, experiment, and practice so that they are always ready to protect our assets.
