Reserve Information Professional - 1825
Community Overview: The Reserve Information Warfare (IW) Programs (Intelligence, Cryptologic Warfare, Information Professional, Oceanography, and Space Cadre) are established under the cognizance of Commander, Naval Information Force Reserve (IW Reserve TYCOM) and Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command. Information Professional (IP) is a Restricted Line community comprised of approximately 260 Naval Officers.
IPs are the Navy's Cyberspace Defensive Operations and Communications Officers with subject matter expertise in networks, computer systems, satellite communications, cyber defense, information & knowledge management, and Command and Control. IPs are expected to apply their expertise in support of maritime operations ranging from coordination with Allies, to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, to defense of the Nation against terrorism, and to combat operations. IP officers help translate the requirements of combat forces into capabilities that effectively employ command and control at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels of war, under all conditions. The community is responsible for the maintenance, operation, and development of cutting-edge cyberspace systems, as well as global telecommunications and space systems that have been designed to operate under the most adverse conditions, from the deep ocean environment to outer space. Information Professionals are technically adept, as well as effective communicators, able to translate complex technical issues into operationally relevant information for Naval and Joint Commanders.
Mission: IPs plan, acquire, integrate, operate, maintain, secure networks, communications, and combat systems that support the Navy's missions, and ensure they are reliable, available, survivable and secure.
Vision: IPs understand the Naval Commander's intent, then harness technology, information and knowledge to ensure resilient command and control, battlespace dominance and mission success.
