After years of surveys and deliberations, the Space Force announced it would headquarter one of its major commands at Patrick Space Force Base in Florida.

The headquarters for the Space Training and Readiness Command, or STARCOM, will initially bring hundreds of personnel to the Space Coast to help develop training programs for Space Force members. The Patrick operation will also include Space Delta 10, which is responsible for wargaming and tactics. Colorado and New Mexico were selected to host STARCOM’s other two deltas.
