U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Anthony Surman, 114th Electromagnetic Warfare Squadron commander, speaks at the city of Cape Canaveral's city council meeting held Dec. 19, 2023. The mayor signed a proclamation declaring Jan. 14, 2024 as '114th EWS Day' in honor of the unit's contributions to the city, their continued involvement in community events, and their commitment to protecting and defending the values and interests of residents, and all U.S. citizens. The 114th EWS is a geographically-separated unit of the Florida Air National Guard's 125th Fighter Squadron located at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. Their mission is to organize, train and equip personnel to conduct electromagnetic attacks in contested, congested and constrained environments downrange, using specialized equipment such as the counter communications system. Previously, the unit operated as the 114th Space Control Squadron before it was redesignated as an electromagnetic squadron in January 2023.
