The Air Force Network Integration Center (AFNIC) (formerly the Air Force Communications Agency) (AFCA) is a direct reporting unit to Air Force Space Command. AFNIC enables assured cyberspace capabilities for the Air Force.
AFNIC has a shared responsibility to evolve the Air Force Network (AFNet) into a single integrated network environment with seamless, integrated systems, applications, and capabilities. AFNIC further helps ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical information for the warfighter in support of Air Force (AF) priorities.
AFNIC communicates, collaborates and coordinates with other AF organizations and domain experts to develop "speed of need" cyberspace net-centric concepts, architectures, as well as tactics, techniques, and procedures. Additionally, AFNIC leverages emerging cyber technologies to meet requirements for current and future air, space and cyberspace operations; allowing the AF to complete the sphere of information dominance.
