Suspension on Processing Basic Space Badge Requests Issued 04 OCT 18

1. This message will expire no later than 1 October 2019.

2. The purpose of this message is to inform Soldiers of a suspension on processing certain
Basic Space Badge requests. Effective immediately, the Army Space Personnel Development
Office (ASPDO) will only process Basic Space Badge requests for FA40 Space Officers,
25S1C Soldiers, and Senior and Master Space Badges.

3. In response to Presidential Executive Order to establish a space force, the Department of
Defense provided to Congress “the final report on organizational and management structure for
the national security space components of the Department of Defense” which directs the
establishment of a “space operations force of career space experts who are trained, promoted
and retained as space warfighting professionals and whom form a community of engineers,
scientists, intelligence experts, operators, (and) strategists”.

4. Army is fully engaged in ongoing space force analysis, planning, and future implementation
activities at the department of defense and joint levels.  The Army identified FY19 authorized
military space billets performing “hands-on” space operations.  Further analysis led planners to
organize space forces and personnel into three categories:  those that are organic to Army
formations, those that are OPCON/TACON to joint commanders, and those that make up
institutional personnel and organizations.  Forces and personnel in these three categories
provide some level of space capabilities, effects, or integration in support of joint and/or Army
space operations.  To this end, the Army is conducting careful analysis to understand which
personnel/positions comprise the space operational force versus those that possess space
knowledge and awareness in support of army formations.

5. ASPDO expects to complete a comprehensive review of the Basic Space Badge criteria and
evaluate the current inventory of space cadre billets within the next 90 days.

6. Do not submit any new Basic Space Badge packets. Previously submitted packets will held
for processing when this suspension is lifted.  Once the ASPDO review is complete and
determination made to the validity of each billets space cadre designation, a MILPER Message
will be published with further direction.

7. ASPDO manages the space badge requests on behalf of the Commanding General,
U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command
(USASMDC/ARSTRAT) in accordance with AR 600-8-22, Military Awards.

8. Questions concerning the space badge requests should be addressed to April Pellegrino,
ASPDO Operations Officer, at telephone (719) 554-0455 or email
