USAF Stands Up Consolidated Cyber Development Center

The U.S. Air Force has established a new center that would address cyber gaps and consolidate enterprise requirements across the service branch.

The new Cyberspace Capabilities Center stood up on Nov. 7 and combines three formerly separate entities: the 38th Cyberspace Readiness Squadron, Air Force Network Integration Center and Air Combat Command’s Cyberspace Support Squadron, USAF said Thursday.

The center will house opportunities to further develop USAF's enterprise information technology, with the leadership of Col. Marc Packler and Chief Master Sgt. Addison Spencer's appointment as superintendent.

“The continuing and expanding demands on our cyberspace enterprise requires us to find better ways to organize, train and equip those forces,” said Brig. Gen. Chad Radeuge, director of cyberspace and information dominance and chief information officer at Air Combat Command.

Radeuge presided over the new center's commencement ceremony.
