USAF Activates 350th Spectrum Warfare Wing

Air Combat Command unit will combat electromagnetic warfare.

This week, the U.S. Air Force activated the 350th Spectrum Warfare Wing which is tasked with electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) warfare. The Air Force stated that the new Air Combat Command unit will ”enable, equip and optimize fielding capabilities to give the U.S. and its allies a sustainable, competitive advantage over adversaries in the electromagnetic spectrum.”

“The activation of the 350th Spectrum Warfare Wing is the latest step the Air Force has taken to maintain our competitive advantage in electromagnetic warfare,” said U.S. Air Force Warfare Center commander Major General Case Cunningham. “Placing this critical mission under a wing commander dedicated to this mission set is fundamental to accelerating needed change and ensuring our warfighters can continue to fight and win in the EMS.”

“The competition in the electromagnetic spectrum is more important than ever before. The joint force is connected by and delivers effects in and through the EMS,” said 350th Spectrum Warfare Wing commander Colonel William Young. “If we lose the fight in the EMS, we will lose the fights in all other domains. We’re here to help make sure that doesn’t happen. Standing up this unit emphasizes the Air Force’s commitment to consolidating and modernizing our entire enterprise so that joint warfighters have freedom to attack, maneuver, and protect themselves at the time, place, and parameters of our choosing.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the new Air Combat Command unit as they work to defend U.S. interests in the electromagnetic spectrum.
  • For U.S. military leaders as they assess and respond to defense and national security needs.
  • For U.S. armed forces personnel serving at home and abroad.
