Maritime Space Officer

Community Overview – Maritime Space Officers (MSOs) are the Navy’s space professionals uniquely qualified to integrate joint space capabilities into maritime plans and operations.  MSOs leverage their skills, experience, and training in core positions in Fleet Maritime Operations Centers (MOCs), joint commands, the intelligence community, naval warfighting development centers, the Naval War College, and staff positions to support operations, as well as man, train, and equip functions.  MSO’s are the Navy’s subject matter experts on space.

Vision - The MSO community supports maritime operations and plans by delivering to the terrestrial fight while also leveraging the Navy's unique operational capabilities to support space operations. 

Mission – MSOs apply the full range of the U.S. military’s space capabilities to support operational commanders across the spectrum of conflict.  MSOs develop advanced tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to increase lethality and expand the Navy’s current operational capabilities.
The first selection of MSOs have been announced. Members can expect to be notified by the MSO OCM and detailer soon. Follow-on actions of slating the initial group into prioritized MSO billets and community indoctrination will be performed by the MSO detailer.
Please contact the MSO OCM if there are any questions.

The next opportunity to apply for MSO will be in Summer 2022 in preparation for the AUG22 Lateral Transfer board. More information on this process is available at the MyNavyHR Transfer/Redesignation page:
