Air Force Cyber Strategy:

Transformational Defense and the Third Offset.

Welcome to the Air Force Cyber College

Air Force Cyber College

The Air Force’s airpower heritage lies in its innovative past that began with the development of the Air Corp Tactical School (ACTS). The ACTS brought together innovative practitioners and strategic thinkers to explore, develop, and mature airpower concepts and ideas. Today, an analogous opportunity presents itself with the cyberspace domain and its associated operations.

Today’s cyberspace domain’s operational tempo does not provide the luxury of being able to spend 10-20 years working to mature cyber tactics, techniques and procedures; and numerous organizations exist across the Federal Government which have cyberspace strategic/operational/tactical domain expertise. As such, an Air Force Cyber College can be used to gather critical, strategic thinkers from all the key players in the government and the private sector, to advance our newest operational domain of cyberspace. The Cyber College enables AU to dynamically collaborate with cyberspace thought leaders, and to lead (as appropriate) the development of an agile cyber workforce whose supporting policy and doctrine is just as agile.

Building upon Air University’s reputation, Cyber College will be designed to address the question of how the Air Force can best respond to threats faced to its core missions- be those threats strategic, technological or resource-driven. The College integrates existing Air University cyber research capabilities, including those at AFIT, to educate Airmen and produce scholarly research to inform decision leaders.
