The 21st Space Wing, headquartered at Peterson AFB, Colorado, stood up the 18th Space Control Squadron on July 22 during a ceremony at Vandenberg AFB, California.

The 18th SPCS will fall under the 21st Operations Group, and will assume the satellite catalog mission from the 614th Air Operations Center, also located at Vandenberg.

"We are excited to have the 18th SPCS join the 21st Operations Group," said Lt. Col. John Thien, 21st OG deputy commander. "With the 18th SPCS as the focal point for our nation's Space Situational Awareness mission, the assumption into the 21 Operations Group will drive great tactical synergy alongside our other SSA units."

The squadron's orbital predictions are a key part to maintaining space superiority. The realignment of this space control squadron to the 21st Space Wing will realize the synergy of pairing the tactical command and control organization with the space surveillance network systems.

The newly created 18th Space Control Squadron will maintain the satellite catalog by processing observations of objects launched into space, currently on orbit, or re-entering the Earth's atmosphere, including more than 1,400 active objects and 22,000 pieces of debris. The unit conducts advanced analysis on special events on orbit, maintenance of sensor tasking and calibration, and execution of U.S. Strategic Command's Space Situational Awareness Sharing Strategy. The 18th SPCS is also responsible for maintaining the Space Common Operating Picture and disseminating the COP as required.

The 18th SPCS will consist of about 70 personnel. Manning will come from 614th AOC and does not result in an increase in total Air Force manning positions. The squadron is commanded by Lt. Col. Scott Putnam.

Moving the space catalog mission from the 614th AOC will allow the AOC to focus more on Battle Management Command and Control in support of U.S. Strategic Command objectives.

The 18th SPCS also includes reassigning the current missions of the 614th AOC, Detachment 1, when it is reorganized as 18th SPCS Det. 1, Dahlgren, Virginia. Detachment 1 will monitor data from the Space Surveillance Network and serve as the SSA backup when activated. The detachment continuously samples sensor data and augments the Space Catalog during planned and unplanned system outages.
