Hanscom AFB

Hanscom AFB is a United States Air Force base located in the city of Bedford, Massachusetts with portions extending into the towns of Lincoln, Concord and Lexington.  It is just outside of Boston, Massachusetts in Middlesex County.


Hanscom AFB is apart of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, one of six centers under Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC). The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center is responsible for total life cycle management of Air Force weapon systems. With headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) conducts research, development, test and evaluation, and provides acquisition management services and logistics support necessary to keep Air Force weapon systems ready for war.


Hanscom AFB manages the development and acquisition of electronic command and control systems. These systems gather and analyze information of potentially hostile forces, enabling commanders to make quick decisions and rapidly pass them on to their forces. Hanscom helps to direct the muscle of America’s air-power to the right target at the right time.
