Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson has approved the reorganization of the Air Force headquarters to establish a Deputy Chief of Staff for Space Operations. The new directorate will begin operating in early August. Over the next two months, the Air Force will work to stand up the Deputy Chief of Staff for Space Operations directorate (A-11) by establishing an initial A-11 cadre, establishing operations and identifying the senior leaders who will lead the new staff. The deputy chief of staff for space operations will be the advocate for space operations and requirements. The directorate will also consolidate space functions from multiple parts of the Air Staff.
