Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The compass in the center of the emblem is borrowed from the official USAF Civil Engineer symbol. The winged star pays tribute to the "Hap Arnold" symbol and reflects Air Force heritage. The chevron is symbolic of the unit's beginning at Arnold Engineering Development Center and that base's history of aerospace testing. The motto "FIND A WAY OR MAKE ONE" reflects the unit's dedication to performing the mission regardless of any adverse circumstances or situations.
