Recognized as the global leader in the development and application of air and space technology, the Air Force provides the U.S. Military with a distinct advantage.
Through the command and control of the world’s most advanced intelligence gathering and communications systems, Air Force personnel deliver critical support to American forces engaged in combat and enhance America’s capacity for domestic defense.
