Operating the largest space program in the world takes the combined efforts and skills of thousands of Guardians. It’s the responsibility of a Space Systems Operator to do everything from detecting sea-launched ballistic missiles and tracking satellites to assisting in rocket launches and space flight operations. These highly trained experts must be able to stay calm under pressure and utilize an incredible amount of skill to effectively perform the multiple tasks vital to Space Force missions.
