The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight and win … in air, space and cyberspace.
To achieve that mission, the Air Force has a vision of Global Vigilance, Reach and Power.
That vision orbits around three core competencies: developing Airmen,
technology to war fighting and integrating operations. These core
competencies make our six distinctive capabilities possible.
Air and Space Superiority
With it, joint forces can dominate enemy operations in all dimensions: land, sea, air and space.
Because of technological advances, the Air Force can attack anywhere,
anytime and do so quickly and with greater precision than ever before.
Rapid Global Mobility
Being able to respond quickly and decisively anywhere we're needed is key to maintaining rapid global mobility.
The essence lies in the ability to apply selective force against
specific targets because the nature and variety of future contingencies
demand both precise and reliable use of military power with minimal risk
and collateral damage.
The ability of joint force commanders to keep pace with information and incorporate it into a campaign plan is crucial.
Agile Combat Support
Deployment and sustainment are keys to successful operations and
cannot be separated. Agile combat support applies to all forces, from
those permanently based to contingency buildups to expeditionary forces.
The Air Force bases these core competencies and distinctive
capabilities on a shared commitment to three values: Integrity first,
Service before self, and Excellence in all we do.
