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 silhouetted eyes and wings of the crow masked in shadow represent wisdom and stealth. The crystal ball represents the world and the unit's effort to leverage technology to improve Electronic Warfare capabilities. The six stars represent the original Combined Test Forces that the unit supports. The Latin motto, "EX LUCE AD UMBRAS," translates to "OUT OF THE LIGHT INTO THE SHADOWS."
