The 152nd Intelligence Squadron was activated on 6 June 1994 and is located at Reno-Cannon IAP, Reno, NV. The squadron was formed by combining personnel from the Sensors Maintenance Section of the 152nd Avionics Branch into the Photo Processing and Interpretation Facility of the 192nd Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron to provide dedicated support to the collection, exploitation, and dissemination of the unit's newly acquired RC-130E Pacer Coin mission.

Following the attacks of 11 September 2001, the squadron was alerted for a yearlong activation in support of Operation NOBLE EAGLE. 152nd IS personnel deployed to Beale and a forward-operating location to support Global Hawk missions in Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. During Operation IRAQI FREEDOM, the unit continued its support to Global Hawk operations, this time from Reno. The squadron was deactivated on 29 October 2003 at the end of two years of high-intensity activity as the lead squadron for Global Hawk Exploitation, Production and Dissemination.

7th SPACE WARNING SQUADRON / 21st SPACE WING

Mission

Working inside a great 10-story pyramid-like structure, the men and women of the 7th Space Warning Squadron continuously scans the horizon for missiles, satellites and other man-made objects in space.

Our primary mission is to detect, track and provide impact prediction of Sea-Launched (SLBMs) and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) launched towards North America to the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD).7th Missile Warning Squadron was the  designation when this was the only mission, this then changed and a Space surveillance role was added.

Our secondary mission is space surveillance. We track man-made objects circling the earth in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Our data, combined with that of other sensors, helps maintain the Satellite Catalogue, an extensive database of over 27,000 man-made objects in orbit. Over 9,000 objects currently orbit the earth requiring accurate maintenance of the Satellite Catalogue in avoiding satellite collisions and in ensuring safe launches of new satellites.

The "eyes" of PAVE PAWS WEST is the Phased Array Warning System. The main building is shaped like a pyramid with a triangular base. The two radiating faces, each with thousands of radar elements (antenna), are tilted back at a slight angle. PAVE PAWS radar beams reach outward for nearly several thousand miles in a semi-circular sweep.
