Reserve EW Squadron re-established as 772 EW Squadron

The Reserve Electronic Warfare Squadron was re-established as 772 Electronic Warfare Squadron, under the command of 70 Communication Group, on 7 April 2005. According to DND's 2005-06 Report on Plans and Priorities, 772 EW Squadron will be staffed by "a cadre of Reserve communicator research operators" (i.e., the reserve force equivalent of the regular force 291 trade). "This new trade is currently undergoing the Occupation Specification Implementation Process."

Created in 1986 and based in Kingston, Ontario, the Reserve Electronic Warfare Squadron was under the direct command of the CFSRS/CFIOG from 1994 until 2005. More information about the Reserve Electronic Warfare Squadron/772 EW Squadron is available at the Reserve Electronic Warfare Squadron Association website.
