1 min read

Lt. Gen. Michael Guetlein, commander of Space Systems Command, said “unity of effort” is needed to enable space procurement programs to go in the same direction and speed up the delivery of technological capabilities to warfighters, SpaceNews reported Wednesday.

He called the appointment of Claire Leon, former executive at Boeing, as director of the command’s space systems integration office, a “huge win for SSC” and discussed how Leon could help bring that unity of effort to space programs.

Guetlein said Leon, former head of the national security space launch program, will coordinate military space programs across the space enterprise.

“Her job is to do horizontal integration across systems to make sure that we’re actually delivering capabilities,” Guetlein added.
