On 5th September it was announced from Washington that the Department of Defense has signed a memorandum of understanding to share space situational awareness data with the Republic of Korea’s Defense Ministry.
This accord provides South Korea’s air force with higher-quality and more timely space information tailored for its specific purposes in exchange for satellite-positional and radio-frequency information it will provide to US Strategic Command (TRANSCOM), the DoD agency responsible for space situational awareness, officials said.
A few weeks before this US agreement with ROK STRATCOM hosted a Space Table Tabletop Exercise (TTX). This brought together key leaders from the Department of Defense and Allied nations, to discuss the integration of space capabilities which provide mission-essential functions in a congested, contested and competitive space environment. – image by the Space and Missile Systems Center courtesy of the 50th Space Wing public web site
