Space Warfighter Follow-On (SWF)- Orbital Warfare (OW) Course
* NOTE: This course requires an invitation to attend, if you do not have the proper permissions to attend you will not be enrolled.* The SWF-OW course is a 3-week in-residence course that establishes a solid foundation for entry-level personnel (1-3 years’ experience) working in the functional area of orbital warfare (OW). After successfully completing Undergraduate Space Training (UST), officers and enlisted members that have been selected for the OW Spacepower Discipline will attend the SWF-OW course in order to prepare them to provide combat effects worldwide. The course begins by providing students with a foundation of the OW function and support to it from other disciplines. The students will gain an understanding of threats and their associated capabilities, limitations, and vulnerabilities. The course then provides an advanced understanding of relative orbital mechanics, key warfighting components, tactical employment concepts, formation operations, Sp/Sp engagements (SSEs), mission planning, and briefing/debriefing guides for SSEs. The course concludes with block exercises and a capstone exercise to practice the fundamentals learned.
