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 globe symbolizes the mission to provide the warfighter with seamless digital connectivity by means of a global information grid. The current data link architecture is represented by the ring around the globe--Link-16/SADL, line of sight. The beyond line of sight (BLOS) is represented by the circles symbolizing satellites orbiting the globe. The triangles are representative of the transmission of information to and from the warfighter via satellite. The background of the patch is a reminder that communication would be void without the current capability provided by the Squadron.
