The various components working on space issues are now in sync moving forward, Chief of Space Operations Gen. Jay Raymond said Tuesday as C4ISRNET reported.

“For the first time ever, everybody’s rowing in the same direction,” Raymond said at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space & Cyber conference. “It’s going to pay a huge advantage to our nation to reduce duplication, reduce costs and increase our ability to go fast.”

The establishment of Space Force led to a new capability development process, beginning with force design and the Space Warfighting Analysis Center, he said.

“It’s an imperative — an absolute imperative — that we move away from a legacy force structure and we get to a force structure that’s more defensible. And to do that, we all have to be rowing in the same direction.”
