Air Force officials announced today that the proposed 2010 fiscal-year budget calls for a U.S. Space Command personnel increase of 700.

While Space Command is based at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, the command also has a number of bases across the country. Still, if the budget is approved, it could mean that Peterson would see a significant increase in airmen and civilian contractors.

As the proposal is now, Peterson would see an increase of 130 enlisted personnel and 59 contractor positions. Schriever Air Force Base would see an increase of 12 positions.

Final decisions will be made after environmental analysis is complete.
