750th Operations Support Squadron

The 750th Operations Support Squadron is a component of the 750th Operations Group, 50th Space Wing, Schriever Air Force Base, Colo.

The primary mission of the 750 OSS is to ensure the maximum combat readiness of the 750 OG by building, developing, and equipping space professionals for orbital warfare. The squadron is responsible for training, intelligence, weapons and tactics, and other operational support necessary for conducting the 750th Operations Group’s on-orbit protect and defend mission.

The 750 OSS leads Mission Qualification and Advanced Training for orbital warfare operations. In support of operational readiness, highly-skilled instructors provide the foundational and advanced knowledge necessary for students to become the world’s preeminent space operators.  The squadron’s elite instructors build orbital warfighters ready to execute their squadron, group, and U.S. Space Command missions.

The Weapons and Tactics unit of the 750 OSS is tasked with developing and refining the tactics, techniques, and procedures necessary to wield and integrate 750 OG combat capabilities with the rest of the Joint Force.

Lastly, the 750 OSS provides both foundational and operational intelligence support – informing 750 OG’s personnel and operations. Fully integral to the orbital warfare mission, the squadron’s intelligence professionals provide timely and operationally-relevant intelligence required to execute the 750 OG’s mission and prevail in any crisis or conflict.

The 750 OSS is charged with ensuring the combat readiness of the 750 OG across the spectrum of conflict, ensuring the tactical units of the group are operating at maximum combat capability and lethality.
