Deborah Lee James, secretary of the Air Force and a former Defense Department executive agent for space, has added the role as principal DoD space adviser.

James assumes the additional responsibility after Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work re-assigned the EA4S position to the PDSA, the Air Force said Wednesday.

“The PDSA will continue to chair the Defense Space Council, which remains the primary body to coordinate and resolve space issues,” Work said.

“While the PDSA will deliver DSC recommendations on space issues, the PDSA will also provide independent assessment and recommendations to the deputy’s management action group when the DSC is unable to achieve a consensus,” he added.

The PDSA will advise the secretary and deputy defense secretary, chairman and vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other senior officials on space issues.
