Supporting the Aerospace Data Facility – Colorado’s (ADF-C’s) 5th Family Day in it’s 30+ years of operations was a great honor. We encouraged families to spend time playing to connect with our gigantic games. We also worked with their Public Affairs team to customize our SnapShots program, which brought families together for a complimentary, commemorative photo of their visit, complete with the famous radomes aka “golf balls” in the background. (We can’t share family photos out of the interest and importance of personal security, but you can see the beautiful eagle in her photo posted above!) Additionally, everyone stayed hydrated with water and sports drinks provided by the USO, which were greatly appreciated on such a hot and unusually humid day.
Our team was treated to a personal tour of parts of the facility and enjoyed learning more about their mission.
The Aerospace Data Facility-Colorado is a multi-mission ground station responsible for supporting worldwide defense operations and multi-agency collection, analysis, reporting, and dissemination of intelligence information. It provides data to defense, intelligence, and civil agencies supporting the U.S. Government and its Allies.
Note: If you are a family who participated in the event and haven’t received your photos, please contact the ADF-C’s Public Affairs team. They have the details on how families can access their photos.
