Welcome to the DEFENCE SPACE ADMINISTRATION FINANCE


INTRODUCTION


The Defence Space Administration was established to support the Nigerian Armed Forces with relevant space products necessary for the conduct of operations in peace and wartime in line with the national space policy.

HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT


Since the Nigerian Armed Forces had long established a strong tri-service military training heritage with the establishment of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna, for cadet training, and the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC), Jaji, for middle level staff training, it was appropriate and cost effective to continue the tradition by... establishing the new strategic level space agency, the Defence Space Administration, on a tri-service basis. The establishment is headed by the Chief of Defence Space Administration (CDSA), Major General EG Whyte. The finances of the college is managed by a Finance Director called the Director of Finance who reports directly to the CDSA. The current Deputy Director of Finance is Brigadier General AM Inuwa.
