New Name for Expanded Mission

The Air Force Communications Agency at Scott AFB, Ill. gets a new name on Wednesday, July 15, becoming the Air Force Network Integration Center to better reflect its role in cyberspace operations. The name change comes as the Air Force realigns its cyber forces under Air Force Space Command and establishes 24th Air Force, the new warfighting arm of cyber operations, later this year at Lackland AFB, Tex. In May, the agency was moved under AFSPC’s administrative control. The communications organization has been a field operating agency within the Office of Warfighting Integration in the Air Force Secretariat. (Scott report by Karen Petitt)
