The Space Development Agency’s Warfighter Council has begun facilitating meetings to discuss national defense needs to support the development of SDA programs, Air Force Magazine reported Monday. The council was created along with SDA’s establishment in March.
“It provides expertise and recommendations on current and emerging operational challenges, and the adversarial threat environment to inform the SDA’s architectural development, prototyping, and experimentation plans,” explained Jennifer Elzea, a spokeswoman for the Department of Defense.
The Warfighter Council’s 20 member organizations also “demonstrate a clear connection” to potential threats that warfighters might face in relation to space, she added. The group intends to conduct meetings every quarter, with another meeting slated for the end of the year.
Council members include representatives from entities like the Joint Chiefs of Staff and intelligence community as well as the combatant commands.
