Responsible for United States Air Force space operations, as distinct from the operational ballistic missiles is the Fourteenth Air Force, based at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. As is typical of most numbered Air Forces, 14th Air Force has two headquarters to which it reports. For research & development, training, and readiness, it reports to the Air Force Space Command. For direct support of operations, including satellite operations and space warning, it reports to the United States Strategic Command. While it was once colocated with the Twentieth Air Force, which is responsible for operational intercontinental ballistic missiles, 20th AF headquarters has moved to the largest hardened missile field, F.E. Warren Air Force Base.
