Space Delta 2 (DEL 2) is a United States Space Force unit responsible for space domain awareness. The delta monitors and catalogs all manmade objects orbiting the Earth, from the Low Earth orbit, Geostationary orbit, and beyond.[4]

Activated on 24 July 2020, the delta replaced the 21st Operations Group, which was assigned to the 21st Space Wing. It is headquartered at Peterson Space Force Base with multiple supporting locations around the world.[6]

Mission

The DEL 2 is to prepare, present, and, if necessary, fight to protect and defend the U.S. and our allies from attack in, through and from space. This involves three distinct areas of focus.[6]

Prepare

DEL 2 prepares combat-minded warfighters and readies cutting-edge weapons systems for fast-paced multi-domain operations.

Present

DEL 2 leads Space Domain Awareness operational planning and presents combat-ready forces and equipment in support of USSPACECOM.

Fight

If deterrence fails, DEL 2, in coordination with allied and Joint Force Commanders (JFCs) and inter-agency partners, will lead the protection and defense of our combined interests in the space domain.

DEL 2 partners with the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), Orbital Warfare, and Missile Warning Deltas to maximize mission success. SDA includes the dynamic integration of ISR, metric observations, and environmental monitoring to enable space battle management and support multi-domain operations.

Units

It is expected to gain two additional squadrons: the 1st Space Surveillance Squadron and a redesignation of the 18th Space Control Squadron, Detachment 1.[4]
