WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE -- The National Air and Space Intelligence Center stood up the Integrated Command, Control, Communications, Computers Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Analysis Squadron during a re-designation ceremony here Sept. 8, 2017.

The new unit replaced the Integrated Air Defense Systems Analysis Squadron and will be responsible for producing predictive all-source intelligence for the operational, acquisition, and policy making communities on integrated C4ISR capabilities.

“As the IADS analysis squadron, we had a reputation as the premier warfighter support squadron with outstanding subject matter experts on adversary air defenses,” said Lt. Col. Burt Okamoto, ACX commander. “But as we transition and grow, so do our responsibilities. We're now entrusted to analyze foreign C4ISR capabilities along with their command and control processes, networks and weapons control functions that enable the adversary to defend their airspace while projecting air and space power."

 

The request for the re-designation was made to reflect the increased responsibilities and capabilities of the squadron’s units, people and assets.

 

“The genesis of the new squadron was to posture NASIC analytic resources to more effectively and efficiently address current and emerging anti-access/area denial threats,” said Okamoto. 

As the demand for intelligence grows, the newly formed unit and its Airmen will be called on to adapt and use their sharp minds and keen skills to pave the way for the future.

“I am confident that the professionalism of our workforce and the years of deep technical subject matter expertise will be the template for other organizations to follow,” Okamoto said.
