Air Intelligence Agency Merges With ACC

Air Intelligence Agency Merges With ACC

Washington (AFPN) October 27, 2000 -- Plans are under way to functionally realign Headquarters Air Intelligence Agency, Kelly Air Force Base, Texas under Air Combat Command, Langley AFB, Va., Air Force officials announced Oct. 26.

Effective Feb. 1, 2001, AIA will change from an Air Force field-operating agency to an ACC primary subordinate unit. This realignment, recognizing the growing role of information operations as a warfighting weapon, has a primary objective of enhancing information operations in direct support of the Joint Force commander.

Under the new arrangement, the National Air Intelligence Center, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio and the Air Force Information Warfare Center at Kelly AFB will continue to report to the AIA commander. Existing administrative support relationships between AIA and the Air Force Technical Applications Center will remain as well.

The agency's two wings, the 67th Information Operations Wing, Kelly Air Force Base, and the 70th Intelligence Wing, Fort Meade, Md., will realign under 8th Air Force, headquartered at Barksdale AFB, La. Senior Air Force leaders have identified 8th AF as the single force presenter for IO products and services. This move brings information operations capabilities into a structure similar to those of other Air Force weapons systems provided to commanders.

Maj. Gen. Bruce Wright, AIA commander, said the realignment "doesn't require the relocation of any units and I expect any changes to manning levels to be minimal."

The AIA's mission is to provide full-spectrum information operations products, applications, services and resources to Air Force major commands, Air Force components and national decision-makers.
