To prepare the Royal Thai Armed Forces on military space capabilities that are planned to be introduced in the future, a Space Operations Center has been opened on 17 August 2019 in Bangkok's Don Muang district.

Developed by the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF), the center will serve as the country's main unit in preservation of national security in space, and will allow the military to meet increasing threats from space, as outlined in the country’s 20-year National Strategy development programme, according to the report from state-run National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT).

Among the capabilities eyed for the facility include satellite communications, data collection and interpretation, surveillance and monitoring of threats from outer space, and satellite maintenance.
