Gen. William Shelton, commander of Air Force Space Command, says the Air Force is taking a pause in proceeding with work to upgrade its Joint Space Operations Center. The JSPOC acts as an AOC for space. It oversees monitoring of orbital debris and notifies operators of potential satellite collisions.The JSPOC is currently tracking 20,000 objects in space, and that number is expected to triple by 2030. But, the JSPOC has been lacking in technology. Shelton says "structural problems" with the process going forward prompted the command to pull back some requests for proposals and rethink the strategy. A new strategy should be set by summer.
