History

The center was initially established as the Air and Space Command and Control Agency (ASC2A) on 1 August 1997. The agency included the two major field units that became the Air Force C2 Battlelab and the Air Force C2 Training and Innovation Group. Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) to the agency's mission and it was re-designated the Aerospace Command and Control Agency (AC2A) on 15 September 1998. A few months later, on 1 January 1999, the AC2A again expanded its mission, taking on such unmanned aerial platforms, and was officially re-designated the Aerospace Command and Control & Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Center (AC2ISRC). The Center gained the Air Force Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Battlelab, and fifteen operating locations intended to network the C2 mission.[1]

Aerospace Operation Center

The Aerospace Operation Center (AOC) was a central mission for the center. Tremendous efforts led the AOC was declared a weapon system on 8 September 2000. The first Combined Aerospace Operations Center-Experimental (CAOC-X) was built at Langley Air Force Base. The next CAOC built stood up over the following year at Prince Sultan Air Base, Saudi Arabia, and became the "premier C2 weapon system in the world." In 2002, the Center underwent its most profound change organizationally since its creation. On 15 March 2002 the Center was re-designated the Air Force Command and Control & Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Center (AFC2ISRC) and realigned as a field operating agency under the Deputy Chief of Staff for Warfighting Integration (AF/XI).[1]

Leading the AOC innovation effort through large-scale experiments that rapidly delivered capabilities onto the battlefield the center efforts collectively marked a seven-year period of modernizing, standardization, and seamless integration. On 2 April 2007, the AFC2ISRC was re-designated the Air Force Global Cyberspace Integration Center (AF GCIC) signifying an Air Force cultural shift to the cyberspace domain.[1] Most recently, on June 16, 2010, the center was realigned under ACC and named the Air Force C2 Integration Center (AFC2IC).
