Information Warfare Community (IWC)

     Our Navy faces enormous challenges in maintaining superiority across an increasingly complex 21st century operating environment. To win in that environment, our most critical need is an agile, trained, and intelligent workforce - that enable us to effectively sense, collect, understand, and act decisively. Achieving this decision superiority, therefore, compels us to dominate the modern information-related disciplines of intelligence, cyber, networks, space, oceanography, meteorology, and electronic warfare. Creating the workforce to execute this mission is imperative as Information Dominance rapidly evolves as a Naval warfighting pillar on a par with air, surface, and submarine warfare.

- Navy Information Dominance Corps Human Capital Strategy 2012-2017. 

Career Waypoints

The Information Warfare Community is in the process of a major business transformation.  Each rating has shortages and overages that are identified by paygrade and Year Group (FY you entered service).  Here’s the challenge: How do we ensure the outstanding talents of our AGs, CTs, ITs, and ISs are not lost from the Navy?  For our IDC Sailors in overmanned Year Groups, we sometimes must find other ratings that require Sailors with similar skills and aptitude.  We can also retrain Sailors to perform new skills in ratings not necessarily related to their current jobs.  For our ratings and Year Groups that are undermanned, we can retrain other Sailors are bring them into the IDC.  The reality is that everyone is a case-by-case situation, but all of this is done via Career Waypoints.  Career counselors and Sailors are strongly encouraged to visit and understand the data provided on the StayNavy Career Counselor's website.   If you are looking to separate, you are encouraged to consider SELRES opportunities.  For specifics on your situation and to help you understand the community summary sheets that are posted in the specific rating links above, please contact your rating ECM.

Intern Opportunities

     The MESAP, MOSAP, MCSAP, MINSAP, and MECCAP are challenging three-year intern programs designed to further develop technical and managerial skills of qualified middle and senior enlisted personnel through advanced training by the National Cryptologic School (NCS) and a series of individually tailored assignments at the National Security Agency.  The next opportunity will be announced via record message traffic in January 2017.
