The Wing is comprised of more than 5,000 officers, enlisted, Air Force civilian and contractor employees responsible for three primary mission areas: operating the installation; deploying expeditionary Airmen in support of the Global War on Terrorism; and defending the base and its people. The Wing reports to the Aeronautical Systems Center, a major development and acquisition product center of Air Force Materiel Command.

The center designs, develops and delivers dominant aerospace weapon systems and capabilities for U.S. Air Force, other U.S. military, allied and coalition-partner warfighters, in support of Air Force leadership priorities.

Approximately 9,000 ASC employees are assigned to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, including 5,000 in the 88th Air Base Wing. ASC is organized into wings, groups and squadrons designed to foster synergy in the acquisition process and speed delivery of war-winning capabilities. ASC's portfolio includes capabilities in fighter and bombers, reconnaissance, mobility, agile combat support, and installation support.
