The mission of the 659 ISRG is to provide direct ISR support to the Twenty-Fourth Air Force, which contributes to United States Cyber Command's mission. Squadron personnel focus on digital network exploitation analysis and digital network intelligence, and provide support to the National Security Agency.
The Air Force activated the 770 ISRG as a provisional squadron in October 2009 to evaluate providing ISR support to the Twenty-Fourth Air Force. The 770 ISRG was inactivated with the establishment of the 659 ISRG.
