Cyberspace Operations

Cyberspace is not only a medium through which Joint Air & Space Forces and C2 operate, but it has become an operational domain of its own. NATO is adopting a new MDO concept that envisions extensive use of advanced cyberspace capabilities that can create powerful effects, which are synchronized with the other domains. At the same time, cyberspace is exposed to its own inherent vulnerabilities, which have the potential to undermine mission success. Assuring and maintaining the freedom of manoeuvre in the Cyberspace domain is the new imperative. The JAPCC promotes and influences the development of Cyberspace doctrine, policy, operational concepts and capabilities with a focus on its integration with NATO Joint Air and Space Power.

Our Cyberspace SMEs provide support to major Joint and Air exercises through the development and execution phases as both OpFor and ExCon. They also support the awareness of Cyber-related technologies and capabilities, maintaining and reinforcing the network of collaboration within the NATO Cyberspace Community of Interest, and researching the current and developing trends in Cyberspace.
