Information Warfare: USAF Establishes Cyberspace Command


October 17, 2006: The U.S. Air Force is assembling force for a separate command to carry out its Cyber War operations. The air force has always aggressively sought out new work. In the past, the air force was quick to claim orbital space, and beyond, as its own. With the appearance, and growth of the Internet, the air force has been quick to develop competence in that area. The Air Force Cyberspace Task Force is working out the details on how the new command will be organized, and operate.

The air force has long been a pioneer in electronic warfare, and began assembling teams of Internet warfare specialists in the late 1990s. This activity has grown to be one of the largest Cyber War organizations in the world. The new air force command will apparently combine these new Cyber War activities, with some of the older electronic warfare ones.
