Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is introducing legislation to strengthen U.S. national security by constructing a new Battle Management Combined Operations Complex at Robins Air Force Base.
This week, Sen. Ossoff introduced the Robins Air Force Base Battle Management Enhancement Act to enable construction of a Battle Management Combined Operations Complex at Robins AFB, strengthening the Air Force’s national defense strategy and capabilities.
“The team protecting our nation at Robins Air Force Base needs continued support for their heroic efforts,” said Sen. Ossoff. “That is why I am introducing this legislation to upgrade facilities at Robins Air Force Base.”
The Battle Management Combined Operations Center will house three new missions for the Air Force, including E-11A Battlefield Airborne Communications Node squadron operations; Battle Management Control Squadron operations; and a Group Headquarters for a Spectrum Warfare Group.
Robins AFB’s Battle Management Control Squadron will begin arriving in 2023 and become fully operational by fiscal year 2025. The first E-11A BACN aircraft arrived at Robins AFB in the spring of 2023 and the unit is expected be fully operational by fiscal year 2027.
Since his first year in Congress, Sen. Ossoff has worked with his Republican and Democratic colleagues in Congress to establish new missions at Robins AFB that will provide an integrated set of command-and-control capabilities for the Air Force.
Last August, Sens. Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) brought Senate Armed Services Committee Chair Jack Reed (D-RI) to Robins AFB to highlight the important role Robins AFB plays in U.S. national security.
