In Dec. 2020, Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station were renamed as the first installations of the U.S. Space Force. Patrick Space Force Base is home to Space Launch Delta 45 (SLD 45), now under the new United States Space Force, and serves as the world's premier gateway to space.
As the Department of Defense's East Coast spaceport and providers of launch support services, SLD 45 is a far-reaching organization. It is responsible for operating three airfields and maintaining billions of dollars in instrumentation and infrastructure for the 15-million-square-mile Eastern Range. The Eastern Range includes the launch head at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and a network of downrange instrumentation stations including Malabar, Jonathan Dickinson Tracking annexes, and Ascension Auxiliary Air Field.
The Major Command is Space Systems Command. Space Launch Delta 45 hosts and supports more than 74 mission partners and tenant units at Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. In addition, there are 39 Geographically Separated Units that support the Southeast U.S., the Caribbean, and South America.
