480th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing

The 480th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing (480 ISRW), headquartered at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, is the Air Force leader in globally-networked ISR operations. The wing's comprehensive set of ISR capabilities include lead wing designation for the AF Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS), as well as national cryptologic, information technology, cyber ISR, tactical analysis, Combined Forces Air Component Commander (CFACC)-support, and national-to-tactical signals intelligence (SIGINT) integration. The wing is global in nature, and spans the full spectrum of ISR operations from humanitarian assistance to major theater conflict -- leveraging federated mission partners to synchronize timely, relevant intelligence that is regionally focused for support of Major Command/Combatant Command theater operations. Activated on June 21, 1943 as the 480th Antisubmarine Group, after several redesignations, it later became the 480 ISRW.
