Barbara Barrett, secretary of the Air Force, wants to establish U.S. Space Command's headquarters at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, following a series of on-site and virtual assessments. The secretary selected the site based on an evaluation of mission factors, community support, costs and infrastructure capacity, USAF said Wednesday.

Redstone Arsenal has met all assessment criteria and additionally brings an existing facility that would provide headquarters support, as USAF builds the HQ's permanent facility.

Other alternative locations for the HQ include sites in Florida, Colorado, Texas and New Mexico. The Department of the Air Force will analyze the environmental impacts of each option and plans to select the HQ's final location in the spring of 2023.
