A Note from the 754 ELSG Director

enable

GarciaThe 754th Electronic Systems Group (754 ELSG) provides and supports secure combat information systems and networks that increase the capabilities of our commanders and leaders of the United States Air Force (USAF), the Department of Defense and other Federal Government Agencies. Our mission is to deliver information driving war-winning decisions by shaping, acquiring, and sustaining warfighting IT capabilities through responsive, adaptive and cost-effective logistics, enterprise services, and infrastructure solutions – to fly and fight in Air, Space and Cyberspace.

 

 

The 754 ELSG is a part of the 554th Electronic Systems Wing, which is headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass.  The Group directly supports the Wing’s mission of providing the USAF with a wide array of horizontally integrated IT products and services and ensures timely, decision-ready information that delivers high quality solutions to support mission requirements.

 

In a June 17, 2008, address to Airmen at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, spoke about some of the challenges in integrating the cyber mission into the United  States military.  “Cyber is in amongst us and we as a nation and as a military have a long way to go to come to grips with it.  We have invested a lot of money in the last two or three years in the cyber world.  And we have experts who are world-class.  But what we don’t have is that broad approach yet…there are very few discussions I have in Washington these days that don’t somehow get to the cyber challenge.”

 

The 754 ELSG takes on the cyber challenge by responding to growing critical information technology and network needs offering secure and integrative IT systems, tools, products and services, through a wide variety of contracts and agreements. We will improve responsiveness and maintain customer focus, employ innovative and comprehensive strategic sourcing practices that deliver synergistic capabilities. We are ever vigilant of internal/external dynamics that influence the integrity of existing support systems as we track technology trends, budgetary cycles and political reforms that may affect opportunities to develop more efficient processes.

 

The 754 ELSG continues to lead the Air Force in optimizing the IT investment and delivering the right solution at the right time at the right price.
