A reorganization of the Department of the Army, 1 August 1962, placed the Chief Signal Officer under the general staff supervision of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations (DCSOPS). According to DA GO 28, 28 February 1964, the Chief Signal Officer became the Chief of Communications-Electronics, which became a separate staff agency. (James E. Hewes Jr., From Root to McNamara: Army Organization and Administration, 1900-1963, Center of Military History, US Army: Washington, DC, 1975, pp. 364, 373.) The official designation of the office has changed several times since then. On 3 June 1986 with the activation of the Signal Corps Regiment, USASC&FG reinstated on the local level the title of Chief Signal Officer. That is, under the Signal Corps Regimental System, the commander of the USASC&FG also serves as Chief Signal Officer.

In 1988, the commander of USASC&FG, MG Leo M. Childs, directed that the title be changed to Chief of Signal.
