Stanbro Named ANG's Outstanding Cyber NCO

Master Sgt. Jeremy Stanbro, a New York Air National Guardsmen with the 224th Air Defense Group, received the Air National Guard's Outstanding Cyber Systems Noncommissioned Officer award from Easter Air Defense Sector Commander Col. Emil Filkorn during a recent ceremony. The award recognized Stanbro's outstanding work integrating radar and sensors into EADS' operations.

Rome, N.Y. -- A master sergeant stationed at the Eastern Air Defense Sector was named the Air National Guard Cyber Systems Noncommissioned Officer of the Year.

The National Guard Bureau recently recognized Master Sgt. Jeremy Stanbro, a Rome resident and member of the New York Air National Guard’s 224th Air Defense Group, for his excellence in networking radars and sensors and integrating data into EADS’ operations.

Among the accomplishments cited in the award is Stanbro’s successful integration of new sensors into EADS command and control decision-making system. The master sergeant was also recognized for merging mobile radars into the operations network and for conducting more than 200 tests to ensure system redundancy.

“Being identified as the best in your field in an organization as large as the Air National Guard is a remarkable achievement,” said Col. John Balbierer, the 224th Air Defense Group Commander. “Master Sgt. Stanbro’s outstanding work provided our operators with more and better information, directly improving the unit’s ability to conduct its critical, around-the-clock, air defense mission.”

The Eastern Air Defense Sector is a North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) headquarters unit located at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome, New York. Responsible for the air defense of the eastern United States, EADS is primarily composed of New York Air National Guardsmen from the 224th Air Defense Group, which is composed of the 224th Air Defense Squadron and the 224th Support Squadron. Other personnel assigned to EADS include a Canadian Forces detachment, Army and Navy liaison officers, federal civilians and contractors, and two detachments of New York Air National Guardsmen located in the National Capital Region.
