Air Force Reactivates 75th Intelligence Squadron to Improve Cyber Operations, National Security

The U.S. Air Force has reactivated the 75th Intelligence Squadron within the 659th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group for enhanced cyber operations and national security. Its responsibilities include deploying intelligence techniques and advanced technologies and ensuring national interests are protected from cyberattacks, DVIDS reported.

Most of the personnel transferred to the 75th IS came from the 7th IS. Air Force Master Sgt. David Rodney, 7th IS flight chief, said the activation is needed because his squadron was becoming “too large and spread out.” He explained that having a smaller unit will allow a more concise mission focus to better support Air Force operations and enable personal and professional development.

The 75th IS was constituted as the 75th Radio Squadron, Mobile on Feb. 26, 1953, inactivated in November 1953 and then was redesignated as the 75th Intelligence Squadron on July 14, 2015. In September 2020, the 16th Air Force deactivated the unit as part of its realignment efforts. 

U.S. Air Force Capt. Corey Green, 75th IS nuclear command and control strategic systems and cybersecurity military lead, said the 659th ISRG and the 7th IS advocated for the reactivation of the 75th IS to consolidate efforts aimed at dominating cyberspace.
