557th Weather Wing Mission

The mission of the 557th Weather Wing is maximizing America's power through the exploitation of timely, accurate and relevant weather information; anytime, everywhere.

The 557th WW delivers worldwide weather products to Air Force and Army warfighters, unified commands, National Programs and the National Command Authorities. In addition, the wing provides twenty-four hour technical assistance on all standard weather systems and equipment.

Each day, the wing's dedicated men and women build the world's most comprehensive weather database of observation, forecast, climatological, and space weather products available on the World Wide Web.

The wing is focused on developing, evaluating, testing and transitioning new technologies to weather teams around the world.
