On 1 June 1981, the unit was reactivated as the 224th Military Intelligence Battalion (Aerial Exploitation) at Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia. The battalion was organized with a Headquarters and Headquarters Service Company, Company A (Aerial Surveillance) (OV-1/RV-1 Mohawk) and Company B (Electronic Warfare) (Guardrail). From February 1984 to January 1990, the battalion provided continuous aerial intelligence collection support to the U.S. Southern Command from an OCONUS operating base.

In 1992 and 1993, B Company, 224th retired their Improved Guardrail V (RC-12D) system and began fielding the Guardrail Common Sensor (RC-12N) system (GRCS System 1).

Company B deployed the RC-12N Guardrail Common Sensor system to Operation Phoenix Venture in Kuwait from August 2001 through June 2002. During this time, they also supported US Central Command in support of Operations Desert Spring, Southern Watch and Operation Enduring Freedom. B Company and Headquarters Service Company entered Iraq in May 2003. HSC and B Company redeployed to Hunter Army Air Field in September 2003.

From May through December 2004, B Company again deployed to the CENTCOM AOR, this time to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

From August through October 2005, B Company responded to an urgent request from US Southern Command and conducted a quick reaction deployment to South America for Operation Palmetto Deck II.
