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 four lightning bolts represent the Squadron's role to support command, control, communications and computer systems which utilize ground-based and airborne sensors and provide secure communications to a global intelligence network. The Spartan helmet, bisected vertically, the left side signifying decades of Cold War Era support and its right side symbolizes the unit's resolve in detecting emerging threats on the Korean peninsula while the helmet itself encompasses the combat intelligence used by employed forces. The Latin motto, "Carpe Diem," translates to "Seize the Day" and represents the Squadron's use of new technology to engage the multi-dimensional battle space of irregular warfare.
