Expanding Reserve Space Ops

Air Force Reserve Command has been increasing the size—people and real estate—and the responsibility of its 310th Space Group at Schriever AFB, Colo. The group has grown from three units to 10 while it has been under the umbrella of AFRC’s 302nd Airlift Wing at nearby Peterson Air Force Base. Now, says AFRC, the 310th will be handling its own personnel and medical support needs. It also will be standing up in another year, the 45th Space Warning Launch Operations unit, a reserve associate unit at Buckley Air Force Base in Denver. The 310th plans to hire some 160 traditional reservists and air reserve technicians to staff the new unit.
