The 692nd Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group (692 ISRG) welcomed their new commander during a change of command ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH), July 17.

Col. David Dengler assumed command of the 692 ISRG from Col. Chad Hartman, as Col. Jason Brown, 480th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing commander, presided over the ceremony.

“This group has been incredibly busy over the last two years,” Brown said. “Under Col. Hartman’s leadership, this group has supported over 1,000 global ISR missions and 65,000 products for the U.S. intelligence community. When it comes to intelligence problems here in the Pacific, there’s no better group of innovators than these Airmen. Their success is unquestionable due to the leadership from Chad Hartman.”

Hartman’s next assignment will be at the Pentagon, Washington D.C.

“To my former and current squadron commanders, chiefs and shirts, I was incredibly blessed to have you,” Hartman said. “Col. Dengler, this is a very special and powerful collection of men and women and you are the perfect leader to take charge. I look forward to seeing what transpires over the next couple of years.”

Before taking command of the 692 ISRG, Dengler served as a strategist and operational planner at U.S. Pacific Command, Camp Smith.

“Col. Brown, thank you for entrusting me with this awesome responsibility,” Dengler said. “To the men and women of this group, know that I will do my best to take care of you and make sure our mission succeeds.”

The 692 ISRG, processes, exploits and disseminates ISR data collected by U-2, Predator and Global Hawk aircraft. The group is also the Air Force component of the National Security Agency-Central Security Service-Hawaii, and provides Air Force National Tactical Integration.
