Igorot Capt. Kirsten Pecua is Plans and Program Chief of Space Delta 2 of the U.S. Space Force

Cordillera - The Plans and Program Chief of the Space Delta 2 of the U.S Space Force is Captain Kirsten Pecua - the eldest daughter of Janice Yodong Tudlong- Pecua of Sagada and Bontoc, Mt. Province and Augustine "Tony" Pecua.

The Space Delta 2 monitors the deep space and provides awareness by monitoring all manmade objects orbiting the earth are safe.

Capt. Pecua's main task is to ensure that the U.S Space Force can access and maintain new assets and capabilities, with variety of resources.

“It could be somebody’s telescope in their backyard contributing data to commercial command and control centers,” said Pecua. “Today, we are coordinating with commercial companies to make sure we get as much information as we can, and share it appropriately so we can protect and defend.”

DEL 2 is the foundation of space operations. They track and maintain where space objects go, track debris, allied satellites, and enemy satellites. They also understand how space weather affects us in the domain. The Delta catalogs things that go into space, without them no one can protect their assets.

Capt. Pecua is also responsible for ensuring she communicates with Peterson-Schriever Garrison members to make sure critical support agreements such as a Memorandum of Understanding and Memorandum of Agreement are in place.  These agreements ensure that our space systems have the right assistance such as infrastructure and maintenance.

From knowing where satellites are and knowing where they're going next, to providing space weather support, DEL 2 is essential to the safety and security of people across the globe and in space.

“Space Domain Awareness is a team sport, we need to ensure the United States, and its allies can operate freely in, to, and from space,” said Pecua.
