STARCOM Leading The Way For Space Systems Testing

Steve Skotte
Who wouldn't want to work for STARCOM? That sounds so cool. It stands for Space Training and Readiness Command and falls under our newest service, the Space Force. Space Training and Readiness Command (STARCOM) exists to prepare combat-ready USSF forces to fight and win in a contested, degraded, and operationally-limited environment through the deliberate development, education and training of space professionals; development of space warfighting doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures; and the test and evaluation of USSF capabilities. STARCOM has been focused on streamlining developmental and operational testing. The commander recently said, "Instead of conducting two separate tests with two separate test scores at two different times, we’ll both reduce schedule and then we think we’ll be more efficient just because we’ll conduct a single integrated test activity that will cover down on the requirements for both the developmental test and operational test. We’ve got to prove that in execution and gather data to show that it is, but we absolutely believe it will save money." See the entire article.
