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 points of the star represent the four corners of the globe, as the reach of the unit support knows no bounds. It also serves as the unit compass guiding them as they forge new technologies. The sword symbolizes the lethal power of the intelligence the unit provides, their strength and role as the leading edge in Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, while the energy device represents the mastery of technology in the service of the Air Force mission to fly, fight and win in the air, space and cyberspace.
