The Air Force has identified 23 organizations for transfer into the Space Force in the next three to six months. It said the CSAF and CSO have been delegated the authority to  execute the transfer when they jointly agree the necessary conditions have been met to affect a smooth transfer.

The transfer plan however does not call for physically moving units or billets around the country or for moving any people. Instead, missions and billets will be transferred to the Space Force and remain in place to leverage the talent, infrastructure, and key capabilities at their current location, the Air Force said. (The shift will affect 1,840 billets.)

The mission transfers are aligned with the White House’s Space Policy Directive-4 vision, which calls for the Space Force to “consolidate existing space forces and authorities for military space activities.”
