Air Intelligence Agency Joins ACC

Air Intelligence Agency Joins ACC

Kelly Air Force Base, Texas -- February 3, 2000 -- (ACCNS) -- The San Antonio-based Air Intelligence Agency realigned as a primary subordinate unit under the Air Force's Air Combat Command during special ceremonies at Kelly Air Force Base Feb. 1.

"This is a natural evolution," said Gen. John P. Jumper, ACC commander. "It's an idea whose time has come. This integrates our information-warfare skills and talents into the normal tactical and operational level of war just as we do fighters, bombers and others."

Under the realignment, the 67th Information Operations Wing and 690th Information Operations Group at Kelly, and the 70th Intelligence Wing at Fort Meade, Md., fall directly under ACC's 8th Air Force, headquartered at Barksdale AFB, La. AIA's three centers, the National Air Intelligence Center at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio; the Air Force Information Warfare Center at Kelly; and the Air Force Technical Applications Center at Patrick AFB, Fla., will continue to be aligned under AIA headquarters.

"We're excited about integrating information operations as a force enhancer and a force multiplier to complement our traditional role of providing global air power for America," said Lt. Gen. Thomas J. Keck, 8th Air Force commander. "AIA's historic motto is 'Freedom Through Vigilance.' ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) contributes to the vigilance. Together with global aerospace and information-warfare capabilities, we encompass the vision of global vigilance, reach and power for America."

"I believe that this ceremony represents a milestone for intelligence," said Tim Sample, director of staff for the House of Representatives' Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. "I believe that this change is a tangible act by the Department of Defense to recognize that intelligence is no longer a support function. Intelligence, in my view, is an integral part of operations. It is no longer a nice to have … it is a necessity."

Maj. Gen. Bruce A. Wright, AIA commander, said the change "is the result of the Air Force's recognition of the critical importance of AIA's information operations mission. I think it's probably the most historic day in the history of the capabilities that we've always brought to the fight."

Wright remains in San Antonio as commander of both AIA and the Joint Information Operations Center, but with the integration assumes an added responsibility as the 8th Air Force deputy commander for information operations.
