The 50th Network Operations Group (50 NOG) was a United States Air Force group assigned to the 50th Space Wing at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado. 50 NOG operated the Air Force Satellite Control Network and was responsible for the 50th Space Wing's cyber and communications systems.
In December 2019, the United States Space Force was established and numbers of Air Force personnel were re-assigned to the Space Force, without transferring to the new service. The group's functions were to be taken over by the Space Force, and on 24 July 2020 it was redesignated as Space Force's Space Delta 6.
The group was first organized as the 1879th Communications Squadron during the Vietnam War in 1965. In 1971, as American participation in the Vietnam War was reduced and United States Air Force closed down its activities at Nha Trang Air Base, the squadron was moved to Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base, Missouri, where it absorbed the mission, personnel and equipment of the 2009th Communications Squadron, which was inactivated.
The unit moved to its present location, then named Falcon Air Force Station, when Richards-Gebaur was turned over to the Air Force Reserve. The 1879th assumed the resources of the 2184th Communications Squadron at Falcon. When the 2d Space Wing was inactivated in 1992 the 1879th was inactivated with it and its mission was taken over by the 50th Satellite Communications Squadron.
The expanded space communications mission at Schriever Air Force Base led to the activation of the unit, now designated the 50th Communications Group. In 2002 the group was inactivated and its components transferred to the 50th Maintenance Group. This action was reversed less than a year later. The group received its last designation in March 2004.
