The main unit at Buckley Air Force Base is getting a new name today to go along with its new mission.

The 460th Air Base Wing has become the 460th Space Wing.

Officials at the base say that the wing will now assume responsibility for space-based global surveillance and warning systems.

Under the change, the 460th will take over some units that currently are controlled by the 21st Space Wing at Peterson Air Force Base near Colorado Springs.
