    The distinction between the unified command, US SPACECOM, aka USSPACECOM,
    and the AF command, AFSPC, has been made here before, in, inter alia,
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Jan-2000/0245.html
    
    The unified command was that which assumed various duties from NORAD.
    
    STRATCOM is also a unified command, its headquarters being at an AF base,
    and its commander an admiral.
    
    It appears that functions of US SPACECOM have been absorbed into US
    STRATCOM.  So, now, as of Oct 1, it is STRATCOM which catalogs objects and
    supplies elsets via NASA OIG.
    
    Cheers.
