Functional Mission Analysis - Cyber (FMA-C)

 

 

Course Overview

The Functional Mission Analysis-Cyber (FMA-C) course applies JP 5-0 concepts of Operational Design and Mission Analysis to cyberspace operations. The course bridges the gap between network operations and the five core missions of the Air Force. Students will learn critical and strategic thinking skills and apply them according to the Functional Mission Analysis methodology to address mission assurance beyond compliance. Students will begin the transition to a warfighting mindset necessary to "fight the network" as a weapon system.

Course Outcomes

  1. Understanding and basic application of operational design principles to cyberspace operations
  2. Leaders and students understand, manipulate and experiment with the dependence of their mission on cyberspace
  3. Application of a problem framing methodology to help cope with the complexity of cyberspace operations
  4. Application of rigorous inquiry into an existing mission to specify the mission assurance requirements

 LANGUAGE INTENSIVE TRAINING EVENTS (LITE)

The Air Force Culture and Language Center’s Language Intensive Training Events (LITEs) immerse Language Enabled Airman Program (LEAP) scholars in culturally complex settings. These events place the Airman in a traditional school, university studies program, or advanced setting such as an international training event or workshop with the goal of enhancing language proficiency.

In July 2021, the Air Force Cyber College co-hosted Cyber LITE with the Air Force Culture and Language Center in collaboration with the US Air Force Academy and Defense Language Institute. Students included LEAP scholars with Chinese Mandarin, Russian and German language skills who have career-related ties to cyber operations or an academic background in cyber studies. By combining language proficiency and cyberspace educational content, Cyber LITE prepares language enabled Airmen and Guardians for strategic competition.
