LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va., Aug. 25 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has realigned its Intelligence Group in a move to streamline intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations.

Air Force officials have been working for the last year on moving the 31st Intelligence Squadron to include it with the 497th Intelligence Group. The move is part of the re-designation of the Air Intelligence Agency to become the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency, the Air Force reported.

Former 31st Intelligence Squadron commander Col. Brad Jones has now given control of the unit over to Col. Dan Johnson. The 31st Intelligence Squadron, as part of the 497th, will operate under the 480th Intelligence Wing in a move officials say will streamline intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

"I plan to take care of our airmen while continuing to present the 497th Intelligence Group's capabilities that enable joint war fighting concepts to enhance ongoing contingency operations through multi-intelligence exploitation and fusion," Johnson said in a statement.
