Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work recently spoke about the Joint Interagency Combined Space Operations Center (JICSpOC) at the Air, Space and Cyber Conference. In his keynote, Work said that JICSpOC “is designed to perform battle management and command and control of the space constellation under threat of attack,” and that “it is the first step in the third offset to start to readdress and to extend our margin of operational superiority.”
Rear Admiral Brian Brown, at Joint Functional Component Command for Space at Strategic Command, also spoke about JICSpOC at the conference, saying that JICSpOC provides “a common space … across the U.S. government and interagency and intelligence community, a common place you could operate, talk, discuss common access levels.” He went on to discuss how JICSpOC is allowing for greater interagency cooperation and better coordination across government.
