PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – The U.S. Air Force is integrating some of its forces to better leverage air, space and information operations combat capabilities to support missions worldwide, Air Force officials announced today.

Elements of the Space Warfare Center, part of Air Force Space Command, located at Schriever AFB, Colo., will integrate with the Air Warfare Center at Nellis AFB, Nev., to become the new USAF Warfare Center. In addition, Air Force officials are looking at what information warfare capabilities might also fit into the integration. Located at Nellis AFB, the new warfare center will belong to Air Combat Command.

The transformation will occur over the next several months. Details will be coordinated by an ACC/AFSPC working group with a goal of integration by Oct. 1. No physical movement of units or closing down of facilities is currently planned.

 

This integration will better meet operational requirements for air, space and information operations

 

“Integrating elements of the SWC and the AWFC consolidates key Air Force warfighting assets into one organization, which will create a warfighting synergy that increases combat effectiveness and peacetime efficiencies,” said General Lance W. Lord, AFSPC commander.

“This integration will better meet operational requirements for air, space and information operations, ensuring the Air Force continues to provide quality stewardship for America’s warfighting assets,” he added. As the consolidation progresses, there will be no interruption to air, space and IO support to the joint warfighter, according to General Lord.

“This integration is another step we’re taking to ensure the Air Force has the right mix of air, space and IO capabilities for training and supporting our combat forces. Doing this now will make us even more ready to meet current and future challenges,” said Lt. Gen. William M. Fraser III, ACC vice commander.
