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 North Star depicts the definition of true heading and reflects the Squadron's diligence in testing to the true factors. The three orthogonal axes are essential to any navigation system and, when combined with the North Star, form the reference for all navigation measurements. The gyroscopic gimbals are comprised of three bands and represent the functions of the unit-to integrate, test and evaluate. The bands also suggest the orbits of navigational satellites and allude to the Squadron's involvement with navigational systems in the past, present and future.
