Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff Admiral Sir Tim Fraser KCB ADC, Air Vice Marshall Paul Godfrey OBE, MP Jeremy Quin, Commander, UK Strategic Command General Sir Patrick Sanders KCB CBE DSO ADC Gen and Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston KCB CBE ADC stand outside the Headquarters to mark the official stand up of UK Space Command. A special ceremony at Space Command Headquarters at RAF High Wycombe marked the official opening of UK Space Command, with the first ‘Space Operator’ Badges presented to personnel. Space plays a vital role in our ability to undertake the majority of defence tasks, with any disruption to the space domain leading to significant consequences on civilian, commercial, economic and military activity. The stand-up of Space Command is a crucial step to ensure we protect UK interests in space and builds on the commitment in the Defence Command Paper to invest an additional £1.4 billion on space over the next 10 years. Under the leadership of Air Vice Marshal Paul Godfrey, the Joint Command will have oversight of all space capability development in the Ministry of Defence across three main areas: Space operations, Space workforce training and growth and Space capability to develop and deliver space equipment programmes. When at full operating capability, UK Space Command will provide command and control of all of Defence’s space capabilities, including the UK’s Space Operations Centre (UK SpOC), RAF Fylingdales, SKYNET and other enabling capabilities. After the newly refurbished headquarters were officially opened, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, presented the first eight personnel with the new ‘Space Operator’ badges, which signify the excellence of space professionals across defence. Six members of the Royal Air Force received the badge, as well as a British Army officer, and an exchange officer from the United States. The design is based upon the Airborne Specialist badge and features a single silver angled wing and a blue laurel surrounding a delta (aligned to a similar logo adopted by the US Space force), an orbit ellipse and Aries star constellation (1 April initial formation equating to Aries in the celestial calendar).
