Wright-Patt National Air And Space Intelligence Center On Track For Major Expansion
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base could receive a big chunk of federal funds to expand its National Air and Space Intelligence Center. The money is part of the National Defense Authorization Act. If approved, the $182 million funding package would be the largest in the base’s history.
The National Air and Space Intelligence Center, or NASIC, at Wright-Patt, is the federal Department of Defense’s primary source for information on foreign air and space threats, officals say. The agency is also involved in investigating cybersecurity threats, efforts to modernize Air Force capacity and determine military policy.
