3/1/2013 - PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Air Force Space Command is celebrating its 30th Anniversary! Here is a significant milestone from the command's history ...

In the fall of 1992, an Air Force Blue Ribbon Panel on space recommended establishing a dedicated Space Warfare Center to exploit the capabilities of space-based assets. Combat operations during Operation Desert Storm relied on space support more than in any past conflict; however, an analysis of these operations revealed shortfalls in the Air Force's ability to leverage space capabilities. In order to better exploit space capabilities, the SWC was stood-up and officially dedicated on Nov. 1, 1993. The SWC was redesignated as the SIDC on March 1, 2006,

The SIDC , which resides Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, supports Overseas Contingency Operations by expeditiously transitioning innovative combat effects to the warfighter. The center also improves exploitation of air, space and cyberspace capabilities through wargaming, exercises, advanced space training, experiments and space-range development. The SIDC provides independent, thorough space and missile operational testing results for Headquarters Air Force Space Command.

The center's mission is to advance full-spectrum warfare through rapid innovation, integration, training testing, and experimentation.
