We have an excellent professional development pedigree and brag on our ability to promote and educate our military and civilian personnel through centralized promotion, military and civilian professional development education.
The Space RCO is a fertile landscape for professional growth by raising future Command and Materiel Leaders with an unprecedented selection rate equal to or higher than organizations with larger eligible populations. We laud our three civilian Secretariat- and United States Air Force-level award winners and are extremely proud of our diverse SETA, FFRDC, and support contract staff that are a core component of our fully integrated teams.
