LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.--The Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) kicked off a collaborative industry engagement with the Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC) in late June to explore potential future U.S. Space Force capability growth.

This engagement may result in future acquisition strategies for prototypes to inform the architecture trade space. SMC’s Development Corps has released topical concept papers soliciting industry feedback over the coming months.

These concept papers to SpEC members address:

  • Space Domain Awareness
  • Persistent Maneuverability
  • Cloud-Enabled Space Enterprise

SMC established the SpEC to facilitate prototype development quickly, through a medium that increases collaboration between the U.S. government and commercial partners. SpEC encourages partnerships and cooperation among traditional defense contractors and non-traditional vendors, such as small businesses and academic institutions.

The Space and Missile Systems Center is the U.S. Space Force's center of excellence for acquiring and developing military space systems. SMC’s portfolio includes space launch, global positioning, military space vehicle communications, defense meteorological space vehicles, range systems, space vehicle control networks, space-based infrared systems, and space situational awareness capabilities.
