West Point cadets see role of final frontier in defense

WEST POINT, N.Y. – Cadets at the U.S. Military Academy are learning the importance of Army space from the Space and Missile Defense’s Space and High-Altitude Research Center.

Lt. Col. Craig Boucher, director of the SMDC Space and High-Altitude Research Center at West Point, said the center’s mission is to provide space and multi-domain operations education and training and provide operationally relevant space- and missile defense-related research projects for cadets. The center’s role is multi-faceted, but they focus on developing space-aware and space-smart leaders for the Army and the Army’s contribution to the joint force.

“Beyond that the vision is to inspire the next generation of Army leaders to pursue careers in space and missile defense,” he said. “On the training and education side of things we provide the space and multi-domain expertise along with the Army Cyber Institute to raise awareness across the corps of cadets on how space enables their tactical actions on the battlefield and reinforce why things like basic land navigation skills are so important when GPS is denied by an adversarial force.”
