The 628th Communications Squadron provides a broad range of communication services to the Joint Base Charleston workforce. In doing so it services more than 22,000 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 53 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, visual teleconferencing (VTC), fixed and mobile voice, public address and emergency mass notification, airfield meteorological and navigational (METNAV) aids and ground-to-air communications, computer security (COMSEC) management, records management, and official mail and postal services.

The Squadron consists of approximately 125 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.
