Col. Jennifer Krolikowski: Air Force Has Acquisition Strategy for Space C2 Program

The U.S. Air Force has submitted to the Department of Defense its acquisition strategy for the Space Command and Control program for review, SpaceNews reported Thursday.

“We have an acquisition strategy already written and in coordination with the Air Force and the Office of the Secretary of Defense,” Col. Jennifer Krolikowski, senior materiel leader for Space C2 at the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, told the publication Thursday.

She said Ellen Lord, defense undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment and a 2019 Wash100 award winner, and Air Force officials will have a meeting on Nov. 26 to discuss the acquisition strategy, which will establish program requirements and outline procedures for testing and contracting.

The service develops software applications designed to help military commanders monitor space-related events through the Space C2 program. Some of these apps include the Radio Frequency Deconfliction tool and the High-Interest Event Tracker.

Krolikowski said the service branch has been collaborating with DoD to address the issues highlighted in a Government Accountability Office report.
