BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Construction workers, assisted by the 460th Space Communications Squadron, protected Team Buckley's space assets by installing a radome June 9.
Affectionately referred to as "Golf Balls," the giant white enclosures protect space operations equipment from icing, snow accumulation and hail. This allows Team Buckley to continue with its mission to "deliver global infrared surveillance, tracking and missile warning for theater and homeland defense."
