Information Warfare Community Overview
Welcome to the Information Warfare Community (IWC) Manager’s page. Our communities provides three core capabilities of Assured Command and Control, Battlespace Awareness and Integrated Fires: which are central for All Domain Access and the EMW concept. We master the tradecraft for planning, integrating, and executing information-related capabilities and operations to produce joint effects within all domains. IWC is comprised of the Navy's subject matter experts on space, cyberspace operations and the electromagnetic spectrum. More information can be found in the Information Warfare Community Tri-fold Handout.
The IWC Officer Community Managers collectively manage the health and welfare of officer communities with Oceanography (1800), Cryptologic Warfare (1810), Information Professional (1820), Intelligence (1830), and Cyber Warfare Engineer (1840) designators.
