An E-11A BACN, Battlefield Airborne Communications Node, arrived on April 24, 2023, at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia. The arrival of the first BACN, often pronounced bacon, established one of the four new mission sets coming to Robins AFB, and falls under the newly activated 18th Airborne Command and Control Squadron. It is a communications relay and gateway system that provides military commanders with a versatile means of exchanging information from multiple air, ground and maritime sources.
