CIC members gather for CONOP development

By Maj. Erin Leon U.S. Space Forces - Space Public Affairs

Members of the Commercial Integration Cell pose for a photo during an Operational Concept of Operations (CONOP) development workshop Mar. 7, 2024, at Vandenberg Space Force Base, Calif. The two day workshop was designed to bring together key stakeholders from the Combined Space Operations Center, U.S. Space Forces-Space and commercial mission partners to collaborate on a formalized CONOP that would align the collective vision for the CIC. During the workshop, attendees revised the CIC mission statement and vision to better capture the way forward to continue commercial integration into operations.

The CIC mission is now to “Deliver optimized space effects across all dimensions by synchronizing actions between government and commercial mission partners and sharing operationally relevant information.” And the CIC vision is “A partnership of mutual trust that delivers an operational advantage ensuring freedom of use and resilient space operations.”
