The 23rd Space Operations Squadron, Detachment 1, a 50th Network Operations Group geographically separated unit located at Thule, Air Base, Greenland, recently completed 50,000 supports without personnel error. A support involves contacting a satellite from a ground tracking station and receiving and sending data. The 23rd SOPS’ mission is to operate the antennas to ensure connectivity with satellites. Each time they communicate with a satellite it qualifies as a support. According to Lt. Col. Kenneth Holmes, 23rd SOPS commander, the milestone is significant because it is rare across the Air Force Satellite Control Network to complete so many supports without error.
