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 nine stars represent the nine distinct test capabilities for which the unit is recognized. The arch represents earth orbits and missile/ballistic missile trajectories which encompasses the globe in an effort to support the defense of the nation from the skies and stars above. The Squadron motto, "SUPERVOLARE CETEROS," translated "TO FLY ABOVE THE REST" signifies the mission area in which the unit tests and evaluates systems.
