Working as a Civilian at AFNWC

The future of nuclear power will lead to a more complex, multidimensional security environment across all domains – air, sea, land, space and cyberspace – where state and nonstate actors alike can employ highly adaptive combinations of strategies, tactics and capabilities to simultaneously and quickly exploit and transit political, geographic and domain boundaries. To meet the evolving demands of 21st century military deterrence and assurance requirements, we will need courageous individuals who share our values to help achieve our mission. We need to set the bar high, because when it comes to safety, failure is not an option.
