Space Force Announces New Command Center in Los AngelesApril 27, 2021
The newly formed space force recently announced a command center will be housed at the Space and Missile Systems Center at the Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo. At a base with a 10,000-person workforce, the site will oversee “the development of next generation technologies” and “the procurement of satellites and launch systems.” Los Angeles joins Huntsville, AL as another command center. There’s still scrutiny about the cost associated with the decision to move to Huntsville; but it makes sense given the region’s history. Long known as a hotbed for space technology and innovation, Rocket City is one of the top locations for the space industry outside of California.
