Los Angeles AFB Community

Mission

LA AFB is headquarters to the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC), part of Air Force Space Command. SMC is responsible for research, development, acquisition, on-orbit testing and sustainment of military space and missile systems. In addition to managing Air Force space and missile programs, SMC participates in space programs conducted by other U.S. military services, government agencies and North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies. SMC responds to user needs by developing and acquiring space systems. After launch and check-out, SMC turns these systems over to the appropriate operating command. SMC also serves as the integrating center for the Strategic Defense Initiative within AFMC. It monitors progress in more than 70 Space Defense Initiative efforts throughout AFMC. SMC itself has direct management responsibility for more than half of these efforts.
