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. Global Attack 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. Precision Engagement 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. Information Superiority 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. Core Values 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.
