The United States Air Force's 6th Intelligence Squadron is an intelligence unit located at Osan Air Base, Korea. During World War II, as the 6th Radio Squadron, Mobile, it gathered intelligence for 10th Air Force from listening posts in India.


The mission of the 6th Intelligence Squadron is to execute 24/7 imagery and analytical operations, as part of the Distributed Ground System-Three (DGS-3), to support Seventh Air Force during armistice and war.[citation needed]


World War II

The squadron was first established in the Signal Corps at Hamilton Field shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor as the 140th Signal Radio Intelligence Company. The unit trained in California and was converted to an Air Corps unit in the summer of 1944 as the 6th Radio Squadron, Mobile, specializing in intercepting radio transmissions in Japanese.[2]

In September 1944, the squadron shipped to India, arriving the following month. Until V-J Day, it conducted operations from Barrackpore, India, remaining in theater through November 1945, when it returned to the United States and was inactivated. It remained inactive until it was disbanded in 1983.[2]


The squadron was reconstituted as the 6th Intelligence Squadron and reactivated in 2009 at Osan Air Base, Korea.[2]
