Space Force, Air Force sign MOA on Guardian uniform development
ARLINGTON, Va. (AFNS) -- Department of the Air Force senior executives signed a memorandum of agreement continuing the development of U.S. Space Force uniforms to accommodate all genders, life events and weather conditions July 11.
Wade Yamada, deputy director of staff, Office of the Chief of Space Operations, and Lea Kirkwood, program executive officer and director, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Agile Combat Support Directorate, signed the MOA extending an agreement signed May 16, 2022. The memo of understanding signed last year formally established the USSF Uniform production process and outlined responsibilities related to the design, development and sustainment of U.S. Space Force uniforms and streamlined communication between the newest military service and the directorate.
“The MOA signifies the continual commitment between the U.S. Space Force and the Air Force Uniform Office to deliver the highest quality Guardian uniforms,” Yamada said. “This partnership enables us to continue developing the service dress while simultaneously designing prototypes for maternity, outerwear, and the mess dress.”
The Change Management Team, within the Office of the CSO, and the Air Force Uniform Office, within the ACS Human Systems Division, have worked side by side to design, develop, modify and field new Space Force uniforms to include physical training gear and the service dress.
“As we embark on the next phase of uniform development, we are excited to continue our partnership with Space Force meeting their uniform requirements,” Kirkwood added. “We are honored to have the chance to contribute to the establishment of this new and extraordinary identity for our Guardians.”
The Space Force is leveraging the Uniform Office program designated by the MOA to develop the maternity service dress, outerwear coat, sweater and headgear. The Uniform Office is continuing to develop the Space Force mess dress uniform in conjunction with the CMT uniform team. Both offices are working diligently to ensure a timely uniform delivery for all Guardians.
