The newly-formed U.S. Space Force is in the market for a new headquarters, and they’re closer to making a choice of where it should be located. The team in charge of making the decision is touring the small list of existing installations and doing evaluations both in-person and virtually.

The individual visits are to assess what would be needed to establish a new headquarters. They will be looking at things like infrastructure requirements, housing requirements, and so forth. The virtual visits will consist of hour-long presentations done by the surrounding communities promoting why they are a great place to live, including an emphasis on how they will support military members and their families.

The remaining military installations on the list as possible candidates are:

  • Patrick Space Force Base in Florida
  • Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado
  • Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico
  • Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska
  • Port San Antonio in Texas
  • Redstone Army Airfield in Alabama

U.S. Space Command expects to have the in-person and virtual visits completed by December 18. The final decision of the new headquarters location is expected in early 2021.
