Space Delta 11 (DEL 11) is a United States Space Force unit responsible for space range and aggressor. It conducts live and virtual training and operations for test and training requirements. It was established on 23 August 2021 following the establishment of the Space Training and Readiness Command, the field command to which it reports. It is temporarily headquartered at Schriever Space Force Base, Colorado, but its final location requires a base selection process.[4][5][6]

A ceremony was held on 30 August 2021 to recognize the delta's activation.[1]
