[SatNews] U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) hosted a Space Table Tabletop Exercise (TTX), bringing together key leaders from the Department of Defense and Allied nations, to discuss the integration of space capabilities which provide mission-essential functions in a congested, contested and competitive space environment.

Lessons learned from the Space TTX help guide the development of capabilities, improve our ability to detect threats against U.S., international and commercial space assets and enhance the resilience of our space infrastructure. USSTRATCOM provides Space Situational Awareness (SSA) services to increase awareness within the space domain and enhance space operations safety.

USSTRATCOM publicly shares SSA information on the Space-Track website (https://www.space-track.org/) and provides tailored information and services for owners and operators through sharing agreements to maximize spaceflight safety and the long-term sustainability of space.
