空间和导弹系统中心(SMC)指挥官今日举行,7月27日,在洛杉矶空军基地,加利福尼亚州的仪式上。

Lt. Gen. John F. Thompson, who is the longest serving three-star commander for SMC, has retired after an illustrious 36-year career with the U.S. Air Force, having served in various roles leading defense acquisition programs, strategic systems and lifecycle management.

汤普森的示范性职业生涯使得全国更安全,更强,更好地抵御越来越有争议的太空环境,并赢得了当之无愧的机会,以享受他生命中的下一章。作为SMC的指挥官,他领导了全国6,300多名军事,政府服务和合同员工,并监督年度预算为90亿美元,占全国空间预算的85%。

In the last 18 months, Lt. Gen. Thompson tirelessly led the groundwork for the stand-up of the U.S. Space Force’s newest Field Command, Space Systems Command, which will lead the Force in the development, delivery and acquisition of innovative space warfighting capabilities. Having completed his four-year tour as the SMC commander, his retirement will not affect the timeline of the SSC stand-up - which is a complex process, requiring activities and approvals at the highest echelons before implementation.

布里格。SMC的当前副指挥官D. Jason Cothern Gen将担任SMC指挥官,而中心则等待一名三星级总监的确认。

编者注:John F. Thompson的生效日期为8月1日,2021年8月1日。SMC将前进,为我们的战争和盟友在有争议的空间域中提供创新的空间能力。
