The GSM Support contract provides Advisory and Assistance Support (A&AS) to the United States Space Command (USSPACECOM)/J31, Global Sensor Management Division. The GSM initiative provides A&AS to USSPACECOM and their supported Combatant Commands (CCMD), US European Command (USEUCOM), US Central Command (USCENTCOM), and U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM).

In addition, the GSM division supports providing Shared Early Warning (SEW) missile warning data to CCMD-sponsored partner nations. SEW is a sub-set of TMW.
