She said, "I frankly see more effort and leadership involvement in space now than ever in the past."<br> <br> Part of the reorganization is a separate acquisition executive for space programs. This could help speed things up and give space programs proper priority.</div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/Will-Space-Force-Reorganization-Slow-Down-Acquisitions

Space Force's Birthday Is December 20, 2020https://www.dau.edu/training/career-development/program-management/Lists/Blog/DispForm.aspx?ID=87Space Force's Birthday Is December 20, 20202020-01-09T17:00:00Zhttps://wwwad.dauext.dau.mil/training/career-development/program-management/PublishingImages/DMSP_Block-5D2.jpg, https://www.dau.edu/training/career-development/program-management/PublishingImages/DMSP_Block-5D2.jpg https://wwwad.dauext.dau.mil/training/career-development/program-management/PublishingImages/DMSP_Block-5D2.jpg<div class="ExternalClass50B19B29C91B4542857A272E573B631D">The U.S. Space Force (USSF) is a new branch of the Armed Forces. It was established on December 20, 2019 with enactment of the Fiscal Year 2020 National Defense Authorization Act and will be stood-up over the next 18 months. The USSF was established within the Department of the Air Force, meaning the Secretary of the Air Force has overall responsibility for the USSF, under the guidance and direction of the Secretary of Defense. Additionally, a four-star general known as the Chief of Space Operations (CSO) serves as the senior military member of the USSF. The CSO will be a full member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in December 2020.<br> <br> As a new military service, the U.S. Space Force will leverage the Department of the Air force for more than 75 percent of its enabling functions to significantly reduce cost and avoid duplication. Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) was redesignated as the USSF as an initial step in establishing the USSF. Military members that were assigned to AFSPC have now been assigned to the USSF but remain Airmen within the U.S. Air Force. Appropriate Air Force space-related personnel will transfer into the Space Force and become Space Force service members in a deliberate manner over the next 18 months. Over time, the DoD vision is to consolidate space missions from across the Armed Forces into the USSF, as appropriate and consistent with law. <pre> https://www.spaceforce.mil/ <a href="https://www.spaceforce.mil/News/Article/2046055/with-the-stroke-of-a-pen-us-space-force-becomes-a-reality">https://www.spaceforce.mil/News/Article/2046055/with-the-stroke-of-a-pen-us-space-force-becomes-a-reality</a> </pre></div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/Space-Force's-Birthday-Is-December-20,-2020
