USSPACECOM, Japan Air Self-Defense Force sign liaison officer arrangement
U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Michael Bernacchi, Director of Strategy, Plans and Policy, United States Space Command, signs a supplemental annex to the memorandum of understanding to assign a Japan liaison officer to the command. In order to strengthen the U.S.-Japan military partnership in the space domain from the strategic to the tactical level, the liaison officer will provide JASDF expertise and insights to USSPACECOM, facilitate communications among Japan and U.S. space units, support U.S.- Japan space-related partnership opportunities and perform tasks that are mutually beneficial for strengthening the U.S.-Japan defense cooperation. This agreement builds on continued space collaboration between the two countries through opportunities like space situational sharing agreements, missile warning data sharing and years of cooperation during GLOBAL SENTINEL, the command’s premier multinational space event.
