|Type||Command and Control|

|Garrison/HQ||Offutt AFB, Nebraska|
|Motto||IMPERIUM REGIMEN COMPITI|
The mission of the 55 MCCS was to execute operations, training and maintenance for the USSTRATCOM Mobile Consolidated Command Center and maintain the MCCC in a posture to facilitate rapid deployment.
Personnel of the 55 MCCS were trained in their primary specialty, in addition to vital expeditionary capabilities that ensure survival. These skills included field living, high-threat convoy procedures, driving and directing 20-ton tractor-trailers, and more. This ability ensured they were not reliant on any single person, enhancing mission accomplishment and mission success.
Blue and yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The orange disc suggests the moon and alludes to the clandestine and covert nature of the squadron's command and control mission. The ghost represents the elusive and mobile nature of the squadron's platform and equipment. The lightning bolts signify the speed and power of strategic forces controlled by the USSTRATCOM Mobile Consolidated Command Center. The Latin motto, "Imperium Regimen Compiti," literally translates to "Command and Control Crossroads" and reiterates the mission of mobile command and control of strategic forces.
