Relocation & Community Information

Clear Air Station is home for the 13th Space Warning Squadron (SWS). The squadron is assigned to the 21st Space Wing, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, CO. Clear, along with radar units at Thule AB, Greenland, and Fylingdales Moor UK, comprise the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System (BMEWS).

The BMEWS mission is twofold: to provide reliable early warning of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile attack directed toward the North American continent and to provide timely and accurate satellite detection and tracking data to the maximum extent possible without interfering with our missile warning mission. Clear also provides space object identification data to the United States Space Command's Space Control Center and Combined Intelligence Center. The missile warning and space surveillance operations conducted at Clear directly support the missions of the Air Force Space Command, the United States Space Command, and the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
