The mission of Beale Air Force Base is to deliver superior reconnaissance capability and combat power in support of national objectives. The mission is accomplished through a total force partnership comprised of Active Duty, Reserve, California Air National Guard, and Space Force Guardians assigned either to the 9th Reconnaissance Wing, the 548th Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISRG) Group, the 7th Space Warning Squadron (21st Space Wing), the 12th Reconnaissance Squadron (319th Reconnaissance Wing), Reserve Command's 940th Air Refueling Wing, or California Air National Guard's 195th Wing.
The 9th Reconnaissance Wing (9 RW) is the host organization for the installation and is aligned under 16th Air Force and Air Combat Command. The 9th Reconnaissance Wing is equipped with the nation's only fleet of U-2 Dragon Ladies. The installation also maintains a high state of readiness in its combat support and combat service support forces for potential deployment in response to theater contingencies. The 9 RW is comprised of a traditional group structure with an A-Staff directorate and multiple detachments at a variety of overseas locations worldwide.

Base Driving Law
It is illegal to use a cell phone on base while driving unless you are using a hands-free device. Any family member or civilian receiving a traffic violation on Beale AFB will be ticketed and fined through the Magistrate Court in Sacramento. Traffic fines in the state of California are costly. Active duty members receiving a traffic violation on base will receive a DD Form 1408 (Armed Forces Traffic Ticket) which will be forwarded through command channels. Points will be assessed against drivers' license whether the driver is ticketed through the military or civilian system.
