Look How Far We’ve Come in 13 Years!

by Joshua Rodriguez, NAVIFOR Public Affairs Office
03 November 2022 On Nov 2, 2009, the U.S. Navy stood up the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance (N2N6), marking a landmark transition in the evolution of naval warfare, designed to elevate information as a main battery of our warfighting capabilities.

Since then, the Information Warfare domain have grown to a worldwide footprint that spans more than just the 91 commands and activities that fall under NAVIFOR’s administrative control – it’s the tens of thousands of IW Sailors directly involved in every aspect of naval operations, with Sailors and officers serving aboard ships, submarines, and aircraft, in support of Naval Special Warfare, and everywhere from Guam and Bahrain, to the National Security Agency and the Pentagon.

Our information warriors are EVERYWHERE, and are indispensable to every mission, every day, from the seafloor to the stars.

NAVIFOR’s mission is to generate, directly and through our leadership of the IW Enterprise, agile and technically superior manned, trained, equipped, and certified combat-ready IW forces to ensure our Navy will decisively DETER, COMPETE, and WIN.
