Cyberspace conversations hope to build local partnership

General C. Robert Kehler, commander of Air Force Space Command, spoke with 170 local community leaders at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort on Sept. 21, 2009. This community event was to initiate a community conversation on cyberspace and discuss how the military and community can work together to define and create a cyberspace roadmap.

“This community conversation is important to us,” said General Kehler. “We have the best community support in the country. We need people to think about cyberspace.” Space and cyberspace have a natural relationship said General Kehler. The overlapping of space and cyberspace creates a synergy more powerful than all the separate parts and pieces of space and cyberspace. “We need to sort through that intersection,” he said.
