US Air Force reveals plan for ‘Space Mission Force’ to protect America using satellites

The new programme will train satellite operators in warfare.

It aims to better prepare airmen to operate military satellites in a threatened environment and includes tactics to respond to threats.

The plan calls for operators to receive intensive training for four to six months, and then spend the next four to six months putting their newly learned skills to the test by having experienced and rookie operators working side-by-side.
