Newcomers' Information: Welcome!


Congratulations on your assignment to Schriever Space Force Base. Schriever SFB is the home of the Space Innovation and Development Center, the Missile Defense Agency, 310th Space Wing and numerous tenant organizations.

The mission is to command space and cyber systems to deliver global combat effects, to include precision navigation and timing and secure satellite communication, through command and control of DoD satellite systems. The other units at Schriever also perform space missions. We are unique in that we have no flightline and no aircraft mission.

Some of the services normally provided at most bases are not available on Schriever; however, Peterson SFB is a full service base, offering a commissary, Base Exchange and other support functions.

More than 8,000 personnel work on Schriever SFB, located approximately 10 miles east of Colorado Springs. You are joining a highly dedicated and professional group of military, civilian and contractor personnel. Schriever SFB challenges you to become part of our tradition of excellence.

You will find Colorado Springs a warm and friendly city with many things to see and do. We hope your transition goes smoothly, and we look forward to you joining the Schriever team!

Wing Leadership

Col. Zachary S. Warakomski Col. Ericka S. Farmer-Hill Chief Master Sgt. Sevin Balkuvvar
