    STARCOM Publishes Foundational Doctrine on Personnel



    Story by 1st Lt. Charles Rivezzo 

    Space Training and Readiness Command

    Space Training and Readiness Command recently released its latest Space Doctrine Publication – Space Doctrine Publication (SDP) 1-0, Personnel – which provides official advice and describes the best way to develop and sustain Guardians throughout their careers.

    SDP 1-0 provides authoritative guidance on U.S. Space Force structural elements, roles and responsibilities, components, Guardian development, and readiness and resiliency pertaining to personnel.

    “Personnel readiness and resilience enables the U.S. Space Force to provide trained and ready forces including Guardians, active-duty Airmen, Department of the Air Force civilians, Air Force Reservists, and Air National Guardsman,” said Maj. Gen. Shawn Bratton, STARCOM commander. “These forces contribute to prompt and sustained space operations that fulfill the cornerstone responsibilities of the Space Force: preserve freedom of action, enable joint lethality and effectiveness, and provide independent options.”

    Bratton said that while SDP 1 focuses on Guardians, it also addresses the role of all these forces in enabling the USSF mission by ensuring a common presentation of forces to combatant commanders, and preservation of capability among forces performing space missions.

    “The U.S. Space Force is rapidly developing in every area and personnel practices are no exception,” Bratton added.

    "We cannot execute spacepower without our Guardians, everything begins and ends with them," said Col. Jay Fulmer, commander of Space Delta 10, which is responsible for USSF doctrine development. "Guardians are built different and must be bold to execute space operations in the face of challenges by our adversaries. Giving Guardians the doctrine and tools that they need is an imperative for Space Delta 10."

    While the doctrine development team is small, they rely on subject matter experts from across the space community to ensure new doctrine includes the most innovative, realistic, and actionable guidance.

    “This document is the culmination of tireless work from subject matter experts across our service,” said Lt. Col. Paul Land, Space Delta 10 chief of doctrine and tactics. “Without their dedicated support and knowledge, we couldn't have published this keystone publication for the service. Our doctrine development team within Delta 10 continues to amaze us with their work both in front and behind the scenes to develop, coordinate and publish our doctrine.”

    In addition to the publication of SDP 1-0, a number of other doctrine documents are currently in various stages of production and coordination. Published Space Force doctrine can be found at the Delta 10 website:
