Shout out to the 460th Space Communications Squadron mission systems flight for being recognized as June’s Panther Pride award winners!
Fun fact: they operate and maintain over $100 million worth of diversified equipment to deliver hardened and uninterrupted mission-critical missile warning data to Combatant Commands, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of Defense! This month, the team successfully implemented a solution fully funded by the Chief Staff Air Force's
Squadron Innovation Initiative and originally devised by in-house Flight NCOs: an inexpensive Remote Control Monitoring Audible Spectrum Analyzer. This low-cost, Commercial Off-The-Shelf tool enables our Airmen to visualize all incoming Radio Frequency signals and receive alerts, saving hundreds of man-hours per week, dramatically cutting the unit's
response time to outages, and improving the Wing's
ability to monitor the base's
“I appreciate all the work you do to provide agile and assured satellite communications in direct support of our missile warning mission. Your innovative ideas will win the day!”
