DOD taps space systems chief

The Defense Department and CIA have a new satellite and space systems chief. DOD brass last month named Air Force Maj. Gen. Richard W. Davis the new national security space architect director.

Davis will develop, coordinate and integrate DOD and intelligence space-based systems. He will report to Defense Department chief information officer Arthur L. Money and to acting deputy CIA director John E. McLaughlin.

Davis, formerly the chief architect of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, replaces Air Force Maj. Gen. Howard J. 'Mitch' Mitchell, who had held the job since September 1998.
