Ka'ena Point Space Force Station is located at Kaena Point on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. It is a remote tracking station of the Satellite Control Network responsible for tracking satellites in orbit, receiving and processing data, and enabling control of satellites by relaying commands from control centers.

The station originally opened in 1959 to support the Corona reconnaissance program.

Detachment 3,21st Space Operations Squadron, a geographically separated unit of Space Delta 6 from Schriever Space Force Base, Colorado, operates the Hawaii Tracking Station on site as part of Space Base Delta 1.
