Gardner Announces Navy Relocation of PMOSSP to Littleton

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced today the U.S. Department of the Navy is relocating the Program Management Office Strategic Systems Program (PMOSSP) Flight Systems from Sunnyvale, California to Littleton, Colorado on October 1, 2019. PMOSSP Flight Systems provides the technical oversight and fleet support for the nation’s sea-based strategic deterrent.  

“The announcement that the U.S. Navy is relocating PMOSSP from California to Colorado is welcome news for our state and will create job opportunities for Coloradans,” said Senator Gardner. “In Colorado, we’re proud of those who serve our nation and are pleased to accept the responsibility of such a crucial program in support of our nation’s nuclear capabilities.”

Senator Gardner believes we must continue to support the brave men and women who serve our nation and ensure they are equipped with the resources needed to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Colorado is home to six military bases: Fort Carson Army Base, Buckley, Peterson, Cheyenne Mountain, Schriever, and the Air Force Academy Air Force Bases. Colorado is also welcoming new units, including the Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Carson and the Joint Forces Space Component staff at Schriever Air Force Base. Gardner understands the essential role Colorado plays in supporting national security and will continue to advocate on behalf of our service members across the state.
