• Space is a warfighting domain — secured and protected by the Space Force — in the same way the land, sea and air are protected by the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force. “The Space Force must develop a cadre of space warfighters to protect U.S. interests in space, deter aggression in, from and to space and conduct space operations,” says Combat Training Squadron commander Lt. Col. Daniel Sebeck. “With the implementation of SWD (Space Warfighting Domain) training, the U.S. Space Force is transforming the way the U.S. military develops its space warfighters and is laying the foundation for a highly trained, ready force,” Sebeck said.

• The U.S. Space Force has developed a new series of courses designed to give new space professionals warfighting mindsets they will carry with them throughout their careers. Upon graduating from Undergraduate Space Training, Space Force trainees will move on to the Space Warfighting Follow-on courses. Starting June 1st, Space Force Combat Training (CTS) will begin teaching Space Warfighting courses at Peterson’s Moorman Space Education and Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

• Each course is based on a core Space Warfighting Discipline: Orbital Warfare, Space Battle Management and Space Electronic Warfare, “and builds on operator’s threat based training,” said Sebeck. “We must be ready and lethal, and it is our responsibility as the U.S. Space Force to provide space warfighters the training to defeat threats in the crowded, contested space domain.”

• “Space warfighters will learn about threats and how space combat disciplines are utilized.” Sebeck says that a passive mindset toward tactical operations is dangerous. The warfighting curriculum was developed with input from a mix of active duty, Reserve and contractor personnel. From those inputs, a team of instructors built final objectives lists that guided the development of each lesson.

• CTS instructors will consist primarily of active duty personnel, contractors, civilians, and Reserve personnel from the 42nd Combat Training Squadron with extensive expertise in space operations. Says Sebeck, “These courses are designed to… develop ready and lethal joint warfighters in order to enhance space warfighting readiness and lethality” and to “execute combat operations in the complex space environment of today and tomorrow.”

• “Our modern lives depend on our space capabilities, and potential adversaries are actively attempting to exploit the benefits space provides us,” said Sebeck. “Every day our space warfighters purposefully prepare to negate potential adversaries’ attempts to claim space superiority over us.”

 

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Without highly trained space professionals, the U.S. Space Force cannot effectively utilize space systems to increase joint force lethality, cannot ensure the safety of the American public, nor can it defend against near-peer adversaries.

“Our modern lives depend on our space capabilities, and potential adversaries are actively attempting to exploit the benefits space provides us,” said Lt. Col. Daniel Sebeck, 319th Combat Training Squadron commander. “Every day our space warfighters purposefully prepare to negate potential adversaries’ attempts to claim space superiority over us.”

The U.S. Space Force has developed a new series of courses designed to give new space professionals warfighting mindsets they will carry with them throughout their entire careers.

Starting today, the 319 CTS instructor cadre will begin teaching Space Warfighting Follow-on courses at Peterson’s Moorman Space Education and Training Center.

Each course is based on a core Space Warfighting Discipline: Orbital Warfare, Space Battle Management and Space Electronic Warfare.

“With the implementation of SWD training, the U.S. Space Force is transforming the way the U.S. military develops its space warfighters and is laying the foundation for a highly trained, ready force,” Sebeck said. “The Space Force must develop a cadre of space warfighters to protect U.S. interests in space, deter aggression in, from and to space and conduct space operations. The SWF courses are the first step toward mastering and applying space warfare discipline.”
