US Army Holds Training Forum Focused on Integrating Space Into Combat

Col. Donald Brooks, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Center of Excellence commandant, said at the recently-concluded Functional Area 40 Training Forum at Peterson Space Force Base in Colorado that training and integration requirements for denied, degraded and disrupted space operating environments were identified during the event.

The forum, which took place from Aug. 15 to 17, gathered FA40 space operations professionals from throughout the Army. According to Brooks, it presented an opportunity to share information and train together.

Guest speakers included Gen. James Dickinson, head of U.S. Space Command, and Brig. Gen. Bernard Harrington, commander of the 1st Multidomain Task Force.

Brooks noted that the forum spotlighted techniques to facilitate space integration into warfighting functions across domains amid efforts to comply with Field Manual 3-0.

Participants also discussed organizations where Army space officers could be placed to influence policymaking and tactical capabilities, DVIDS reported Friday.

Capt. Richard Colvin, an Army Space and Missile Defense Command official, explained that FA40s focus on delivering space-based support to ground operations. In contrast, the U.S. Space Force is concerned with conducting strategic operations in space.
