Gov. DeSantis announced that Florida’s Patrick Space Force Base was selected as the home for the U.S. Space Force Space Training and Readiness Command (STARCOM). Florida’s Space Coast offers unmatched aerospace infrastructure, military installations and top tier academic institutions.
According to Frank DiBello, president and CEO of Space Florida, “This decision by the U.S. Air Force reflects the strategic importance of Florida in advancing national security and defense in space. Bringing STARCOM’s headquarters to Patrick Space Force Base is a significant milestone in Florida’s history and reaffirms our critical role in advancing the nation’s space and military capabilities.”
