The 310th Space Wing held a ceremony welcoming three new squadrons previously assigned to the 926th Wing, Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada wing's Unit Training Assembly Sept 10. 
The 26th Space Aggressor Squadron, the 379th Space Range Squadron and the 14th Test Squadron now fall under the 310th Operations Group. 

“This move is significant,” said Col. Elizabeth Paget, the 310th OG commander and presiding officer for the ceremony. “These units have been preparing warfighters for the next engagement for decades and the prep for the fight continues. We will give America the warfighting capabilities we need not only to fight but to win.”

The 26th SAS replicates enemy threats to space-based and space-enabled systems during tests and training exercises. By using GPS and satellite communications jamming techniques, it provides Air Force, USSF, joint and coalition military personnel with an understanding of how to recognize, mitigate, counter and defeat these threats. 

The 379th SRS provides a safe and secure environment for testing and exercising space capabilities and is the Reserve associate unit to the 25th Space Range Squadron. Together, the squadrons operate and maintain the military's only Space Test and Training Range.
The 14th TS delivers and sustains warfighting capabilities through operational testing and evaluation of space and cyber systems. Operational test information and recommendations provided by the 14th TS help guide decisions on space system designs, manage and reduce risk, identify and support problem resolution and ensure space and cyber systems are mission capable for warfighters.

“We live in chaotic and uncertain times with regard to the future of Reserve Space Forces,” said Paget. "However, the missions that exist today will exist tomorrow, regardless of the color of our nametapes. We must remember that the flag on our shoulder remains the same and that is who we ultimately fight for and serve.”
