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 five deltas represent the mission of other test and evaluation organizations and are in formation to accomplish the mission. The last delta represents the 746th Test Support Squadron joining the formation as a wingman, ready to support the mission. The plain mountains represent the barren lands where new weapons systems are developed. The Zia symbol represents the vision of the future and the power of the vision. The polestar represents the guiding force that leads the unit to that vision. The motto, "PRESS," is derived from fighter pilot jargon and terminology. By calling out "Press," a wingman signals to his lead that he sees the target, is able to protect the lead and is in position to support for mission success. This perfectly describes the attitude and capabilities of the
Squadron.
