The U.S. Air Force plans to reorganize the Space and Missile Systems Center by fall 2018 in order to speed up the acquisition process and eliminate silos among organizations, Defense News reported Thursday.
“It will have a production corps. It will have a development corps. It will have an architect,” Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson told reporters during a roundtable Tuesday at the Space Symposium in Colorado.
The report said the chief architect will oversee the synchronization of programs across SMC.
Wilson, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, said the reorganization aims to set up offices that focus on partnerships and innovation and added that the service expects the new center to achieve initial operating capability in October.
