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 crow is the symbol most associated with the electronic warfare community and represents the stealth and power of the Squadron's software. The lightning bolts and pulse train allude to the unit's software interleaving with its adversaries' electronic defenses, set to disrupt the same. The castle represents the unit's adversaries; the crenellations resemble the opponent's electronic defense pulses. A crack in the defenses is formed by the Squadron's electronic attack, opening the way for the United States Air Force airspace.
