Air Combat Command’s Directorate of Plans, Programs, and Requirements held an activation and assumption of command ceremony on August 18, 2023, to mark the activation of Detachment 4.

The Det provides data and analytic support to ACC’s Numbered Air Forces, Wings, and Air Operations Centers. The detachment’s mission is to execute operational analysis by transforming data into concise and readily usable information for ACC commanders and warfighters within combat airpower, cyberwarfare, and intelligence formations.

“Every day, commanders and warfighters across ACC are faced with mountains of data and weighty decisions,” said Major Micah J Hafich, the new Det 4 commander. “The analytic acumen of Det 4 airmen will help our ACC teammates execute their missions from a position of decision advantage.”

Operations analysts at Det 4 will play a crucial role in interpreting data to provide Airmen with the tools and information they need to execute their mission efficiently and effectively for the future fight.

Det. 4 is a steppingstone to organizing, training, and equipping Operations Analysts to meet the vision of decision advantage against our adversaries. With the stand up of the detachment, data analytics will now be more accessible to the operational and tactical levels.

“As ACC’s premier analytic team, the Airmen of Det 4 will deliver decision dominance in support of those Airmen charged with going into harm’s way to preserve our way of life,” said Col. Dan Crawford Deputy director of ACC Plans, Programs and Requirements.

Col. Crawford presided over the ceremony appointing Maj. Hafich as the commander of Det 4.

While the Detachment was officially activated on 8 December 2022, the Detachment is now manned with nine personnel, and will continue to grow in the coming years.

ACC commanders and warfighters seeking analytic support to their combat airpower, intelligence, or cyberwarfare formations are encouraged to contact Det 4, HQ ACC at, or by DSN 574-0089.
