The Ground Electronics Engineering Installation Agency, better known as GEEIA, was established under the Air Materiel Command in June 1958, at Griffiss AFB, NY. Its first commander was Brig Gen Haskell E. Neal. The mission of the new organization was to manage the installation portion of the USAF Communications Electronics Support Program, as approved by Headquarters USAF; perform or direct systems engineering-installation to ensure technical and schedule compatibility between related ground electronics systems; and perform field engineering and installation of facilities through field offices to ensure timely completion of approved ground electronics programs. The Airways and Air Communications Service's engineering and installation units transferred to the new organization between 1 October 1958 and 1 January 1959. On April 1, 1970, GEEIA was consolidated within AFCS.
