DAYTON, OHIO — A new commander is taking over a national military intelligence agency headquartered at an Air Force base in southwest Ohio.

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base says Air Force Col. Leah Lauderback is taking command of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center at the base near Dayton. A Wednesday ceremony at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force marks the command change.

The center near Dayton analyzes data on foreign aerospace forces and weapons systems to determine performance characteristics, capabilities, vulnerabilities and intentions. The Air Force has said the centerís assessments are important in shaping national security and defense policies.

The center has more than 3,000 employees worldwide.

Lauderback, who replaces Col. Aaron Prupas, most recently commanded the 67th Warfare Group at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.
