March 3rd, 2016

Moulton Commends Air Force for Establishing Nuclear Command, Control, and Communications (NC3) Integration Office at Hanscom 
 
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) applauded the U.S. Air Force for their decision to establish its Nuclear Command, Control and Communications (NC3) Integration Directorate at Hanscom Air Force Base. Hancom will focus on high-tech radios and terminals to communicate key messages, known as emergency action messages, between national and military leaders and military operators.
 
“Hanscom Air Force base is ideally suited to assist in managing the recapitalization of our nation’s nuclear command, control, and communications infrastructure,” said Moulton. “Modern, effective communications technologies between the President and our military leaders are crucial to safely managing our nuclear capabilities. I look forward to continuing to work with Air Force leadership to ensure Massachusetts is a strong contributor to our national defense.” 
 
NC3 is a complex system of land, air, and space component that assure connectivity between our nation’s leaders and military units in charge of our nuclear forces. This new mission will bring 43 new positions to the Base, including a program executive office for NC3, and will leverage Hanscom’s technological expertise.
 
Hanscom Air Force Base is the only active duty Air Force base in New England, is an 846-acre base located in Bedford, Lexington and Lincoln, bordering Concord.  At the base, a mix of active-duty military, civilian and contractor employees develop and acquire sophisticated radar, cyber and information technology-based systems that provide critical battlefield situational awareness to U.S. warfighters. Hanscom creates more than 6,000 direct and 10,000 indirect jobs for a total of more than 16,000 jobs, with a fiscal year 2013 economic impact of $6.1 billion for the Commonwealth’s economy.
