Overview

According to the Air Force, the 754th Electronic Systems Group “provides responsive information systems to support more efficient and effective logistics, contracting and comm-computer capabilities Air Force wide.” It also “sustains comm-computer capabilities for Unified Commands services and specified DoD and non-DoD organizations.” ((Ibid.))  A promotional guide produced by the 754th ELSG describes their functions as providing and suporting “secure combat information systems and networks that increase the capabilities of our commanders and leaders of the United States Air Force (USAF), the Department of Defense and other Federal Government Agencies. Our mission is to deliver information driving war-winning decisions by shaping, acquiring, and sustaining warfighting IT capabilities through responsive, adaptive and cost-effective logistics, enterprise services, and infrastructure solutions – to fly and fight in Air, Space and Cyberspace.”5

The guide continues:

The 754 ELSG is a part of the 554th Electronic Systems Wing, supports the Wing’s mission of providing the USAF with a wide array of horizontally integrated IT products and services and ensures timely, decision-ready information that delivers high quality solutions to support mission requirements.  In a June 17, 2008, address to Airmen at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, spoke about some of the challenges in integrating the cyber mission into the United States military. “Cyber is in amongst us and we as a nation and as a military have a long way to go to come to grips with it. We have invested a lot of money in the last two or three years in the cyber world. And we have experts who are world-class. But what we don’t have is that broad approach yet…there are very few discussions I have in Washington these days that don’t somehow get to the cyber challenge.”

The 754 ELSG takes on the cyber challenge by responding to growing critical information technology and network needs offering secure and integrative IT systems, tools, products and services, through a wide variety of contracts and agreements. We will improve responsiveness and maintain customer focus, employ innovative and comprehensive strategic sourcing practices that deliver synergistic capabilities. We are ever vigilant of internal/external dynamics that influence the integrity of existing support systems as we track technology trends, budgetary cycles and political reforms that may affect opportunities to develop
more efficient processes.

The 754 ELSG continues to lead the Air Force in optimizing the IT investment and delivering the right solution at the right time at the right price.

Mission

754th8Acording to the Air Force, the 754th ELSG “provides technical and customer service support as well as acquisition and program management oversight of over 160 Combat Support Information Technology (IT) systems. 754 ELSG also manages the Air Force standard desktop environment, and serves as the USAF lead for software program management under the auspices of the DoD Enterprise Software Initiative. 754 ELSG is the source of a large infusion of commerce in the Montgomery area with government employees and contractors from local and national IT and support companies.”6

In addition to this, the Group’s activities include “managing the Air Force single enterprise-wide license contract with Microsoft Corporation, executing the Chief Information Officer’s Information Technology Commodity Council Strategic Sourcing program and administering the Network Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract valued at over $9 billion. 754 ELSG manages over 50 Air Force Contracts and Basic Purchasing Agreements with a total value of $15 billion.  According to the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, 754 ELSG is the largest single employer of information technology personnel in Montgomery.”7

Contracts

The 754th ELSG manages several major contracts for the Air Force and Department of Defense.  The largest of these contracts is the Air Force Network-Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract which is a “five-year, $9 billion program, that provides engineering, software development, system integration, security, and telephone services, plus voice, video and data hardware, and software products. NETCENTS is the major Air Force contract vehicle; all new work for the USAF falling within scope must be executed through NETCENTS unless a waiver is granted.8

According to the NETCENTS website operated by the 754th:

The purpose of the Air Force Network-Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract is to provide Air Force, Department of Defense and other Federal Agencies a primary source of networking equipment/product supply and a means of system engineering, installation, integration, operations, and maintenance for a family of Department of Defense (DoD) adopted commercially standardized networking solutions that are interoperable with Air Force, Joint, and DoD Standardized Networking Technical Architectures.  The NETCENTS contract will include Network-Centric Information Technology, Networking, Telephony and Security (NCITNTS) Voice, Video and Data Communications to include (but not limited to) Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) products, system solutions and systems hardware and software to satisfy the requirements for interoperability, compatibility, and resource sharing of both Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) and Contractor Furnished Equipment (CFE), supporting the Air Force’s Global Information Grid (GIG) architecture. NCITNTS is designed as a flexible end-user solution to embrace diverse current and future requirements, ensure interoperability through standards-based technology (using both GFE and CFE) and implement the constant evolution of state-of-the-art technology and system solutions, supporting initiatives such as the Defense Information System Network (DISN), Defense Switch Network (DSN), Defense Message System (DMS), Air Force System Network (AFSN) (Secret Internet Protocol Router Network – (SIPRNET), Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network – (NIPRNET)), Defense Research & Engineering Network (DREN) and Combat Information Transport Systems (CITS) program.9

Some major recipients of these  contracts include:

754th6754th7

Other contracts are for enterprise software and hardware aquisition, as well as for federal employee  purchase programs.  One particularly large contract is with Lockheed Martin for their involvement in the Global Combat Support System.  According to the Air Force, this system “provides a component-based Reference Architecture Framework that serves as the Integration and Application Framework Layers for GCSS-AF functional capabilities consistent with the Defense Information Infrastructure Common Operating Environment (DII COE), the Joint Technical Architecture — Air Force (JTA-AF), and based on commercial open standards. The GCSS-AF Reference Architecture Framework also provides common interfaces for those functions that either directly or indirectly support Command and Control (C2) or share information with C2 Systems.”10  This contract was awarded August 16, 1996 is worth $304,490,950 for “indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to provide for total system integration services and products to modernize, integrate, evolve and maintain Air Force and Department of Defense Automated Information Systems.”11

There is now a second version of the Air Force Network-Centric Solutions contract known as NETCENTS-2.  However, there is only minimal details available at this time.12

    Not sure why my email is important to you. I saw a hit on my email, thank you google, tracked the IP and it was yours. good thing to know the AF is hitting AF spouse emails.

  11. September 8, 2011 at 9:55 am

    I add my thanks to those of other patriots. Thank you for your keen interest in my Anti-NWO websites and blog.
    My server logs showed me that you’ve actually managed to surpass the Russians spammers who have been dogging my domain for a year already.
    I could easily block your entire netblock, but I’m sure you’ll just use proxies. NET132 (NET-132-0-0-0-0) 132.0.0.0 – 132.255.255.255.
    How about if you do something about recovering the Missing Ducal Crown of Liechtenstein instead?
    And while you’re at it, would you mind eliminating the devil worshipers inside our NSA, you know, the ones that are known to be working long range takeover plans. And expose Aquino’s associate from my home town, The Witch, later aka The Snake Lady. That’s just a few agenda items that would benefit our country.
    Well I thought I should come and say hello. Regards, An MKULTRA nightmare.

      Greetings. I know you’re aware that I wrote a post about your Group recently in addition to the first message I left here.

      I wanted to clarify here that your group’s IP range was not spamming me, just consuming a ton of bandwidth in a short period of time.

      I’ve been having another flood of Russian & Chinese spam bot attacks, so I had to go into the server logs again.

      I noticed your visits have stopped. I’ve also had a huge increase in proxy visits, which I attribute to the ban hammer falling hard on my domain. You know I did not ban your net range.

      I’ve been very busy on my blog lately and would you mind sending your scraper back to my domain? I’d like the analysis to include some of the loose ends I just tied up and brought to the surface. Thanks. I don’t anticipate coming back here again.

      It’s good to know that real Americans are still inside of our military intelligence. Thank you.

    My website describes an equation which, during a high school physics class in 1957, I promised myself I would find. Seeing the 754th had visited the documents brought pride. Your mission lends a sense of your concept of the radiation and information fields in Earth’s space.

    Sort of like NSA’s rooftop.

    Thank you for visiting our website. Not only did you visit but you are specifically looking for a goniometer. I would very much like to assist you with this interest. Please contact me at your next convenience at the email address that I provided. THank you again and hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day.

    I’ve been getting a ton of comments from someone at AFNOC lately. This is their IP: 132.3.61.68 although it says it is in Nevada? Have they expanded?

  15. June 22, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Hello out there in cyber land. I was running Google Analitics on my web site and saw that I had received over a dozen visits from you. THANKS. If there is ever anything that I can do for any of you in the Real Estate line please let me know. I was an Air Force brat and was a member of the 355th TAC Fighter wing back in the day. Military discounts provided.

  16. July 11, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    This isn’t their website you dipshits. I think you’re all safe from the government’s scrutiny, because if you’ve posted here assuming you’re speaking to the battalion, you’ve just proven you’re too stupid to be a threat to anything but the gene pool.

    I’m curious as to what information my email has for you. My Google account activity say you accessed my Gmail and went through it.

  18. December 2, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    To whom it may concern,

    My company recently built a website for a sub-contractor of an agency located at Wright Patt Air Force Base in Dayton, OH. The agency is having trouble visiting the website due to some kind of network block stating that the site is not “categorized”. I am not familiar with this issue and don’t know how to proceed. Here is the error message:

    ACCESS DENIED
    Access through the AF Gateway to websites are blocked or allowed by category
    in accordance with:
    Your IP address: 198.97.67.62
    The URL is:http://prolinefinishing.com/about-us/
    Port: 80
    The category of this URL is: none

    The IP address led me to your organization and I am hopeful that some will be able to steer me in the right direction in terms of getting this block lifted. Any help or direction you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You

    Hi,

    Not sure why you are tracking my mobile phone. Guess I’ll have to go to Alabama to find out. Got my eyes on you.
    Guess I’ll just have to hide since you keep looking.
