From there, the Simplified General Perturbations version 4 (SGP4) algorithm used by AFSPC
to differentially correct orbit estimations can be executed, using the new measurements to create an updated TLE.
Jumper, took great interest in the AFSPC
effort, and via the Air Force Medical Operations office directed the Human Systems Information Analysis Center to coordinate an independent technical review of the proposed program before making Air Force-wide changes.
In essence, the majority of AFSPC
ISR Airmen are going through the same thing--learning ISR for space for the first time.
Keppler said the AFSPC
team recommended providing taskers to action officers at the earliest opportunity and giving them more accountability throughout the tasking process.
Fortunately, there is a massive focus on cyber defense within AFSPC
oversees Air Force network operations to provide capabilities in, through, and from cyberspace; manages a global network of satellite command and control and communications, and is responsible for space system development and acquisition.
At the same time, the declining intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) force structure and the subsequent reductions in the numbers of missile units and career field authorized positions led AFSPC
to consider alternatives to a stand-alone career field.
Now the document does go on to say, no one can predict the future but in terms of trying to think our way through it, I think there's a real opportunity for us here to begin to understand something about the nature of warfare in the 21st century and in particular, in Colorado Springs (where AFSPC
is headquartered), the view from there suggests that, while much remains the same, there are some important areas here that we need to be particularly mindful of, so let me just throw out Kehler's thinking about the changing nature of warfare and even though war remains a political activity for political ends, everybody who's ever read any of the classics and of course, Clausewitz, in particular, knows that that is true.
Consequently, a cooperative effort between the Jet Propulsion Laboratory/NASA and AFSPC
began in December 1995 to study earth-crossing asteroids and comets.
Mark Hiatt, the NSSI/RNSSI's distance learning chief at AFSPC
headquarters, Peterson Air Force Base, Colo.
Dekok spoke of the recent transfer of the Space and Missile Center (SMC) to the AFSPC
from the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC).
As the chance of a war in space intensifies, developing AFSPC
personnel who are equipped to "win tomorrow's fight" will be increasingly necessary.

Similarly, NRO and AFSPC
have established a joint Space Protection Program.
