The Alpha Centauri Space Research Council was a branch of Federation Starfleet. The Research Council was responsible for exploration (like UESPA), research and logistical support. It maintained its own fleet of starships. Its chief, Admiral Alexis Osman, was one of the five chiefs of staff of the nascent Starfleet. The insignia was a vertical rectangle.

The Alpha Centauri SRC became a branch of Starfleet following the founding of the United Federation of Planets in 2161. SRC personnel adopted the Starfleet uniform, set apart from other divisions by the SRC insignia, and its ships adopted the "USS" prefix. By 2162, Alpha Centauri had few ships to contribute to Starfleet round a smattering of freighters and support craft because their efforts were directed toward terraforming and settlement in the Alpha Centauri system. Like the Vulcan Space Council, the Centauri were a valuable partner in planetary research, logistical and administrative support of the combined fleet.

By 2162, the Centauri chief of staff was Admiral Alexis Osman. She participated in meetings with the Federation President. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)

By 2165, Alexis Osman of the Space Research Council and Captain W.M. Jefferies of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers oversaw the construction of the new wave of Columbia-class starships, four of which were launched in the same year. Osman and Jefferies had contracted the Rigelian shipbuilding firm Grennex Aerospace to provide upgraded components for these ships. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)
