We exploit the air power characteristics of persistent and precision effect, flexibility, perspective, reach, penetration, versatility and responsiveness.
We are leaders in: command and control of air and space operations; intelligence, surveillance and response; and targeting.
We are the leaders for strategic, operational, tactical, technical and logistic management of Australia's military aviation capability.
