Posey Co-Leads Delegation Effort To Bring Space Force's STARCOM to Brevard County

Washington, May 31, 2023 - Today the U.S. Air Force announced it has selected Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station as the preferred location of the U.S. Space Force’s (USSF) Space Training and Readiness Command (STARCOM) and Delta 10 unit. Last year Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) co-led a Florida Delegation effort with Senators Rubio and Scott to urge the U.S. Air Force to select Brevard County as STARCOM’s permanent home.

“Florida’s booming Space Coast is the world's premiere space port and the perfect location for Space Force’s STARCOM headquarters and Delta 10 unit," said Congressman Posey.  We are honored to be selected as the preferred location for these two important military units." 

“I have been very supportive of bringing STARCOM to the Sunshine State, and today, I am proud to stand with my colleagues and Secretary Kendall to announce it will finally become a reality,” said Senator Rick Scott.  “This is a massive win for Florida’s role in our country’s space efforts that will bring more jobs and enhance our national security. Florida’s aerospace and aviation workforce is more than 100,000 strong with the skills and experience necessary to support STARCOM and Space Delta 10—that is complimented by the more than 40 colleges and universities boasting extraordinary talent pipeline that continues to grow. Like I’ve always said, Florida has a long history of advancing America's national security and leadership in space, and I'm confident this strategic decision to headquarter STARCOM and Space Delta 10 in Florida’s Space Coast will continue that tradition for years to come.”
