Distinctive Unit Insignia


Description/Blazon
A silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of a blue disc bearing an orange color Maltese cross within a mascle divided horizontally green on top and red in base and all encircled by a continuous blue scroll inscribed "DECONFLICT" at the top and "CLEAR THE WAY" in base in silver letters.

Symbolism
The green and red of the mascle, symbolic of both terminal and Air Traffic Control services of the unit, are indicative of the safe and expeditious movement of aircraft within the Corps and Division rear areas. Orange and white (silver) represent the unit's extensive communications mission and affiliation with the US Army Signal Corps. The Maltese cross (cross formeť), an international Air Traffic Control symbol, connotes a landing zone or alighting area and alludes to the rotary wing aircraft which are serviced primarily by this organization.

Background
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 18 August 1980.
