Colorado Air National Guard hosts media round table about current impacts on ANG’s space readiness

Colorado Air National Guard hosts media round table about current impacts on ANG’s space readiness

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — The Colorado Air National Guard will host a news media round table on current impacts on the ANG’s space readiness, due to the delay in the establishment of a Space National Guard, June 10, 2022, at 1 p.m. Mountain Time, via an online platform.

ANG Citizen-Airmen from California’s 148th Space Operations Squadron, Colorado’s 233rd Space Group, which is the first ANG space unit, Florida’s 114th Space Electromagnetic Warfare Squadron, and Guam’s 109th Space Electromagnetic Warfare Squadron will be available to answer questions about the effects of this situation on the readiness of the people in their units.

While the U.S. Space Force has been established, no reserve component exists for this new service.

More than 1,000 ANG Citizen-Airmen based in 7 states, and one territory, who perform or support space missions every day, remain unaligned with their natural Active Component mission partner, the USSF.

“Our National Guard space professionals are the key to integrating space capabilities into overseas contingency operations, homeland domestic response, such as missile warning and wildfire support, and international state partnerships,” The Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Laura Clellan said.  “The delay in the establishment of a Space National Guard erodes the readiness of our Citizen-Airmen to provide this critical support to our national security.

ANG space units defend our nation on behalf of combatant commanders across various mission areas:  missile warning; space domain awareness; satellite command and control; military satellite communications; space electromagnetic warfare operations; space test and training; analysis of space intelligence.

Integrated NG space units will align efforts under one service, reduce bureaucracy, enable common space warfighter culture, and can be accomplished within existing NG resources.
