The Space Development Agencyâs Warfighter Council has begun facilitating meetings to discuss national defense needs to support the development of SDA programs, Air Force Magazine reported Monday.Â The council was created along with SDAâs establishment in March.
âIt provides expertise and recommendations on current and emerging operational challenges, and the adversarial threat environment to inform the SDAâs architectural development, prototyping, and experimentation plans,â explained Jennifer Elzea, a spokeswoman for the Department of Defense.
The Warfighter Councilâs 20 member organizations also âdemonstrate a clear connectionâ to potential threats that warfighters might face in relation to space, she added. The groupÂ intends to conductÂ meetings every quarter, with another meeting slated for the end of the year.
Council members include representatives from entities like the Joint Chiefs of Staff andÂ intelligence community as well asÂ the combatant commands.
