AFNIC celebrates 75 years
For 75 years, the men and women of the Air Force Network Integration Center and its predecessors have played a vital role in providing communications, information technology, and cyberspace systems operations and sustainment for Air Force missions.

Welcome to 2035…the Age of Surprise
The following is an impressive, fast-paced video on accelerating change, “Welcome to 2035…the Age of Surprise”. The video was provided to our Association courtesy of Brig Gen Chad Raduege, USAF Ret, and guest speaker at our 2015 annual convention banquet. It was produced by the U.S. Air Force Center for Strategy and Technology at the Air University. The video was based on Blue Horizons, a multi-year future study being conducted for the Air Force Chief of Staff, a “meta-strategy for the age of surprise.” Enjoy!
