The Space Development Agency (SDA) transferred to the U.S. Space Force (USSF) on October 1, 2022.

“As we transfer to the U.S. Space Force, SDA looks forward to continuing our important work on the National Defense Space Architecture, which will deliver critical space-based capabilities to the joint warfighter,” said Dr. Derek Tournear, Director of the Space Development Agency. “Our team is committed to carry on the same dedication to speed, delivery and agility that our agency has demonstrated in the past and we’re grateful for the support of leadership to carry on our mission and maintain our values as part of the U.S. Space Force team.”

SDA will bring a unique acquisition strategy to USSF and continue to drive speed into acquisitions in order to deliver new capabilities faster to outpace our adversaries and maintain the technological advantage we get from space and integrate our space architecture with other war fighting domains to give our warfighters a strategic edge.
