Cape Canaveral Space Force Station (CCSFS) is an operational site supporting U.S. Space Force operations. CCAFS is a subordinate unit to Patrick Space Force Base.  CCSFS is the primary launch site for the United States Eastern Range.  CCSFS has four active launch pads.  

Also located at CCSFS is a 10,000-foot runway.  The runway is located close to the launch complexes for ease of access by military airlift aircraft.  Using this runway, large cargo payloads can be unloaded (or uploaded) in support of launch operations at Cape Canaveral.
