The mission of the 211th Engineering Installation Squadron is to engineer, install and relocate fixed command, control, communications and computer (C4) systems in facilities. Bollen Air-to-Ground Weapons Range, Detachment 1, provides a quality, realistic, tactical range environment for air-to-ground, airdrop and Joint Terminal Attack Controller training to ensure the combat readiness of flying units throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.

The 271st Combat Communications Squadron’s mission is to deploy, operate and maintain tactical communications packages in support of Air Force missions worldwide, as well as civil and disaster-relief missions within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The 271st CBCS can provide command and control satellite nets, intrasite telephone services, data services, tactical switchboards, communications center operations, and network and multisite voice communications.

The Air National Guard Band of the Northeast is assigned to the dual missions of supporting regional Air National Guard units through performances in ceremonies, activities and recruiting tours; and public relations concert tours for the Air National Guard and the “Total Air Force.”
