The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center's reorganization, dubbed SMC 2.0, reached full operational capability this month.

The center has been working over the last 18 months to implement a new enterprise approach to space capability development and production. On Nov. 22, SMC 2.0 hit its full operational capability milestone.

In a press release, SMC Commander Lt. Gen. John Thompson said that while the new construct is now operational, it will take time to fully transform SMC’s culture.

"Our vision for innovation has been codified into our re-architecture and I've delegated authorities to empower the right levels to lead," Thompson said. "Although we are at FOC, we will continuously improve to field fast, relevant and affordable solutions. SMC 2.0 is a journey, not a destination."
