The Air Force's new cyber organization received the "ready" sign to move to initial operating capability.
The 24th Air Force now is capable of performing critical elements of its mission, the Air Force Space Command's inspector general staff found Jan. 22.
The 24th Air Force is composed of the 67th Network Warfare and 688th Information Operations Wings, both located at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, and the 689th Combat Communications Wing at Robins base, Georgia.
The numbered Air Force is also supported by Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units across the country.
The Air Force says the 24th Air Force mission is to extend, operate and defend the Air Force portion of the Department of Defense network and to provide full spectrum capabilities for the joint warfighter.
"Cyber mission assurance is a top priority of the Air Force," says Maj. Gen. Richard Webber, the 24th Air Force commander.
"The domain we are tasked to operate within touches every part of the Air Force and joint mission. Cyberspace operations represent one of the critical and major areas of growth within the Air Force today. The challenge of maintaining our freedom of action in cyberspace is of substantial importance to military operations around the world."
