Great addition!



The 411th Flight Test Squadron (411 FLTS) is part of the 412th Test Wing based at Edwards Air Force Base, California. It performed competition testing for the YF-22 and YF-23 aircraft.

One thing I forgot to add...

A lot of people, skeptic especially, always ask where all these 'secret space programs' could operate out of without many prying eyes




"Deep Space Surveillance" errr just WHO are we watching out there?

"NASA Space Operations and Experiments" Don't recall ever seeing THIS image on a NASA site...

Emblem of the 23d Space Operations Squadron (23 SOPS), a squadron of the United States Air Force, which operates New Boston Air Force Station in New Hampshire, a remote tracking station of the Air Force Satellite Control Network.

Blazon: Sable, a demi-globe issuing from base Azure land masses Or and issuant therefrom a spectral figure of the first eyed of the third and garbed Gray between in dexter a flight symbol ascending palewise Argent and in sinister a mullet of four of the like; all within a diminished bordure Blue.

Significance: 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 globe in a black disc suggests the earth in space and reflects the squadron's theater of operations. The flight symbol represents a satellite in earth orbit and signifies the unit’s functions of telemetry, tracking, and command of satellites. The spectral figure embodies the ever watchful efforts of the unit personnel in the performance of their duties. The polestar symbolizes true north and implies the squadron's dedication to its mission.

VINDICATOR




Built by Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works, the Vindicator system was a highly classified project (rumored to be "more secret than the F-117A," the stealth fighter program) from the 1980s. This patch includes the Lockheed Advanced Development Projects skunk mascot wearing a helmet and scarf. The device emanating a lightning bolt is a laser. The patch depicts a laser anemometer optical air data system, which takes the place of conventional pitot-static probes on stealth or high-speed aircraft where physical protrusions are undesirable. The device is a velocity indicator (or, in aviation parlance, a v-indicator).

This technology has perhaps reached the limits of its secrecy?

High-technology company Catch the Wind is commercialising a nacelle-mounted, forward-looking system capable of sensing both wind speed and direction, as well as rapid wind variations.In December 2009, the company released striking trial test results for the innovative lightweight technology, claimed as unique and named the Vindicator Laser Wind Sensor (LWS).



Building upon 19 years of aerospace research know-how and experience, Catch the Wind, which was founded in September 2008, acquired a technology license from OADS for all its commercial (non-aviation) applications. The Vindicator LWS uses advanced laser technology combined with Doppler radar techniques to analyze air particle movement and determine wind speed and direction.

LO FLIGHT TEST




The words "LO Flight Test" describe a "Low Observables" flightiest, in all probability a radar measurement test for a stealth aircraft using the radar measurement range at Groom Lake, Nevada. The date of this particular flight test is unknown, but the test reportedly involved a B-2 stealth bomber. The sigma symbol in the middle of the patch refers to the unknown value of the aircraft's radar cross section (sigma/zero being the ideal radar cross section measurement for a stealth plane). "Huge deposit" indicates the bomb load deposited by the bomber on its target, while "no return" refers to the absence of a radar-return, meaning that the aircraft was undetectable to radar. It is unclear why there is a star on the tail of the sigma, though it may simply be an artistic touch.

RED HATS




Red Hats was the nickname of the 6513th Test Squadron, whose mission was to test fly a collection of Soviet military aircraft surreptitiously acquired from foreign sources. The 6513th was based at Groom Lake, Nevada in a collection of hangars on the northern end of the base that became known as "Red Square." The program to test Soviet MiGs at Groom Lake began in the late 1960s as a joint CIA/USAF effort under the code names HAVE DRILL and HAVE DOUGHNUT.

Again, note the collection of six stars on the patch, which may refer to Groom Lake's nickname, Area 51.

The 6513th was deactivated in 1992 and transformed into the 413th Flight Test Squadron.

413th FLIGHT TEST SQ




The 413th Test Squadron was designated and activated on October 2, 1992, when it was formed out of the disbanded 6513th Red Hats Test Squadron. The Red Hats had conducted flight testing of purloined Soviet MiGs and other aircraft at Groom Lake. In March 1994, the unit became the 413th Flight Test Squadron, nicknamed the "Bombcats."

Based at a restricted section of Edwards Air Force Base called "North Base," the mission of the 413th was to organize flight tests of Electronic Warfare systems around the world. A detachment of the 413th, called the "Nutcrackers," continued to operate out of Groom Lake and the Tonopah Test Range. Daily flights in unmarked Beech aircraft shuttled members of the 413th to the secret bases each day.

The 413th was responsible for a number of programs; code names included SUNDOWNER, ZIPPER, and IBIS DAWN. In May of 2004, the squadron was deactivated (although the unit designation was later transferred to a squadron formed from a detachment of the 46th Operations Group at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida). The remaining "Bombcats" assets became part of the Electronic Warfare Directorate, also headquartered at Edwards Air Force Base.

PROJECT ZIPPER


This patch represents an unknown project undertaken by the 413th Flight Test Squadron The zipper seems to refer to the fact that the project cannot be discussed. The first part of the phrase "We make threats" might refer to making simulated (or real) electronic "threats" against aircraft.

More clues for those who wish to investigate....

They happy face symbology, the zipper smile.

NUTCRACKERS




"Nutcrackers" was an alter ego of the 413th Flight Test Squadron referring to detachments operating at classified locations that included Groom Lake and the Tonopah Test Range. The collection of 4+1+3 stars on the left side of the patch refers to the 413th Flight Test Squadron. The crow and the lightning bolts symbolize the unit's electronic warfare mission.

SnF!

Yes, we flew F-22 and 23's like the 4452nd flew the A-7

However, a correction to our location, it's the North Base of EDW.

Some of these Badges have been freaking me out a bit...These triangles and Stars might be the first proof for Black Space Programs....Notice how always 1 Star is really outshining all the other ones on many badges. A few Badges have the Moon depicted, is this a metaphor or a direct connection?
The Triangles perhaps indicate a specific Aircraft or Spacecraft, which coincidentially are headed away from the earth rather than towards it.
Also, it seems like all the newer badges have their stars distant to earth, where as the older badges have theirs on earth somewhere:








This one actually reminds me of former UFO encounters, where whitnesses claimed seeing a Triangular Aircraft with glowing Dots on the Corners -> Project Aurora??




Notice all the stars surrounding the Moon









PS: I'm just thinking out loud here

Just a little clarification.
The 4452nd really tested the the F-117. Flying the A-7 was a cover story.

In every military unit I've been exposed to, there are always some very talented, very creative folks. One may recall the graphics that were painted on both fighters and bombers in WWII.

Many times, a unit patch primarily pertains to the larger military unit. And they are boring.

But when you are in a niche unit of lesser size, or an elite unit, or a highly specialized unit, you're free to come up with some very colorful, creative, and often very funny patches. For the more classified activities, they are only worn on the base, within the unit.

One of the more unique and interesting patches included Marvin the Martian, and I can't find it right now.

The implications of some of these patches are indicative, while others are suggestive, or outright cryptic.

You just learn to enjoy them when you find them, and any modern computer controlled sewing machine can duplicate almost any design one wishes to create, either one, or one hundred.

Fun stuff, from men having fun.
