US Military creates Operationally Responsive Space Office in New Mexico

The United States military has opened a new office for Operationally Responsive Space at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. Col Kevin McLaughlin is the director.

The mission of the new office is to develop, test and more rapidly deploy satellites if existing, bigger satellites were attacked or damaged in natural disasters. “There’s a realisation that some of these (satellite) assets are vulnerable,” said Col Kevin McLaughlin. The ORS Office here will be focused on smaller satellites, smaller boosters and getting those capabilities into the hands of the warfighter.

Here is the release from Kirtland Air Force Base.
