628th Communications Squadron

U.S. Air Force Fact Sheet

The 628th Communications Squadron provides a broad range of communication services to the Joint Base Charleston workforce. In doing so it services more than 23,000 active-duty, reserve, government civilian, and contractor personnel from the 315th and 437th Airlift Wings, the 628th Air Base Wing, various Navy, and Army Commands, and 65 tenant units that span Joint Base Charleston’s geographically separated Air Base and Weapons Station.

The 628th Communication Squadron plans, installs, operates, and maintains the full spectrum of joint communications systems and knowledge management services decisive to the successful mission execution of Joint Base Charleston and its tenant units. Specific services include computer and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) data network connectivity, fixed and mobile voice, emergency mass notification, ground-to-air communications, TEMPEST, Communications Security (COMSEC) management, records management, and SharePoint.

The Squadron consists of approximately 81 Airmen, Sailors, Civilians, and Contractors. The vast majority of that end-strength resides in the Cyber Operations Flight (SCO) focused on mission execution, and with the exception of the command section, the remainder of the unit resides in the Plans and Resources Flight (SCX) focused on future plans and programs.
