CBS’s 60 Minutes will air a special two-part segment on Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) this coming Sunday, April 26, reflecting a broad array of AFSPC missions — launch, satellite operations, missile warning, acquisition, and the Joint Space Operations Center.

The GPS Directorate is a joint service effort directed by the United States Air Force and managed at the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC), Air Force Space Command, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Calif.

“The show seldom uses two-part segments, and the producers expressed that the visually interesting nature of the mission and intellectual heft of the interviews was the deciding factor in expanding the segment beyond the normal 12 minutes,” reads an email from the Retiree Activities Office of Los Angeles Air Force Base.

Included in the segment is an interview with Brigadier General Bill Cooley, director of the GPS Directorate. Cooley was interviewed at the Boeing facility in front of a GPS IIF satellite, and will discuss the foundational nature of space to the military and economy, as well as emerging threats and how the Air Force is responding.

60 Minutes airs on CBS at 7 p.m. ET/PT. Check local listings for specific times and channels.
