Intelligence squadron achieves full operational capability.
The 71st Intelligence Squadron at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, recently reached full operational capability.
The squadron is a subordinate unit to the 655th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group at Wright-Patterson and is a total force integration member unit of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, also at Wright-Patterson. The unit provides a cadre of multi-disciplined, mission-ready scientific applications specialists and intelligence analysts to the center. Squadron personnel conduct strategic-level research and analysis, providing intelligence to senior Department of Defense leaders, joint/combined forces, combatant commanders and component commanders.
The 71st IS comprises 54 Reserve members and was activated in September 2013. Achieving full operational capability means the squadron has sufficiently trained intelligence personnel to fulfill the mission requirements levied by its active-duty customer, NASIC.
"I couldn't be more proud of the dedicated, professional men and women of the 71st IS," said Lt. Col. Julie Spears, squadron commander. "They worked very hard to ensure we delivered the best-trained Reserve support possible for this new and complex mission." (445th Airlift Wins public affairs, Wright-Patterson AFB)
