I didn't realize that there was a unit in the military that was doing this I initially thought it was all private but when I realized how important the mission was I was very thankful that someone was actually doing this mission set the defense of duty operation officer position is really charged with the protecting defend mission here on the JS Bach operations floor so what that really means is that we charged with keeping track in custody of all HPA's high valued assets and ensuring that there's no potential coll orbital threats that put those high valued assets in danger additionally we track and monitor all space launches that occur to make sure that anything getting put up in space is actually what they say is being put up into space before I got into space isalean didn't understand so I digged out the general public knows how exactly how much their lives depend everyday on the stuff that goes on in space so whether that's just the GPS in your car or simply making telephone calls anytime we have a break up in space those are generally the more stressful days so if there is a collision in space we want to quickly gain custody of all the pieces of debris that could have been created through that event and we want to make sure that we start tracking those so that there's not another potential collision that happens in space so the team they work tirelessly we have several response teams that come in the most critical important thing that we do here at the day Spock is make sure that the warfighter never feels like they're alone we're here to troubleshoot and resolve any issues that could occur that could potentially keep that ability from the warfighter so we want to make sure that they're always feel like they have somebody back at home who is watching out for their best interests make sure that they have every tool at their disposal to succeed in their mission to come home to us safely taya please

Mission

The 6th Space Operations Squadron provides a backup command and control center for the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP). DMSP is the longest running production satellite program ever. The DMSP satellite constellation provides strategic and tactical weather prediction to aid military operations planning at sea, on land, and in the air. The satellites can image visible and infrared cloud cover, measure precipitation, surface temperature, and soil moisture. In addition, it collects specialized global meteorological oceanographic and solar-geophysical information in all weather conditions. It also has sensors for space weather data that is used to assist in high-frequency communications, over-the-horizon radar and spacecraft drag and reentry tasks. The information provided by the DMSP satellites is used to compile various worldwide weather products for numerous users, such as the Air Force Weather Agency and Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center as well as civilian authorities through the Department of Commerce. The 6th is located at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado.

History

The 4000th Support Group was organized on 1 February 1963 as a component of Strategic Air Command. It was reassigned to the 1st Strategic Aerospace Division on 1 January 1966. On 1 January 1973, the organization was redesignated 4000th Aerospace Application Group without change in assignment or location. It was redesignated 4000th Satellite Operations Group on 3 April 1981. .

On 1 May 1983, the 4000th Satellite Operations Group at Offutt Air Force Base was transferred to the newly formed Air Force Space Command under the 1st Space Wing and was given a new designation, the 1000th Satellite Operations Group ('One Grand'). The group was reassigned to the 2d Space Wing on 1 April 1986. In May 1989, Detachment 1 at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, was upgraded to squadron status, becoming the 5th Satellite Control Squadron. On 30 January 1992, the group was reassgned to the 50th Space Wing. On 31 July 1992, the 1000th Satellite Operations Group redesignatedas the 6th Space Operations Squadron and was reassigned to the 50th Operations Group. The unit was still a Regular Air Force unit and was still stationed at Offutt.

In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed a bill that merged federal weather programs. Prior to the merge, federal programs were deemed to be redundant. This merger would save the government money and allow one entity to control national weather products. The merger also moved weather operations to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration in Suitland, Maryland.

On 30 September 1998, the 6th Space Operations Squadron was inactivated. It activated in the Air Force reserve with assignment to the 310th Space Group at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado on 1 October 1998.

The squadron's operations have been command and control of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellites since 1 February 1963.
