  • Voice: Let’s take a brief look at how the Air Force organizes itself to conduct IO. At the Service level is the Air Intelligence Agency, or AIA. AIA is the single agency for the performance of Air Force wide intelligence roles and functions. AIA provides full-spectrum IO support through reachback to Air Force major commands, Air Force components and national decision-makers. A major organization within AIA is the Air Force Information Warfare Center, or AFIWC. AFIWC’s mission is to develop, maintain and deploy information warfare capabilities in support of operations, campaign planning, acquisition and testing. AFIWC has organized itself into many units to perform its mission including the Air Force Information Warfare Battlelab. The purpose of the Air Force battlelabs is to identify off-the-shelf technology that could provide new military capabilities and demonstrate those capabilities for possible adoption by the war-fighting organizations. AFIWC also owns the Air Force’s IW schoolhouse. The 39th Information Operations Squadron at Hurlburt conducts the formal training for all of the Air Force’s IW warriors. You may review the pop-up information for these organizations by placing your cursor over its shield.
