COME MAKE A FUTURE WITH US
At the intersection of cyber and engineering, intel and computer science, national security and
professional achievement, a cadre of highly dedicated civilian professionals, working shoulder to
shoulder with their active-duty counterparts, work to ensure the Air Force’s advanced weapon systems
remain effective and undeterred in even the most hotly contested cyber environments.
They comprise the Cyber Resilience Office for weapon Systems (CROWS) of Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC). Its mission is to detect and eliminate cyber vulnerabilities in emerging and legacy weapon systems across the Air Force, preventing cyber exploitation and fostering an Air Force-wide culture of risk mitigation and cyber resiliency through training and mission development.
After pinpointing vulnerabilities through threat-informed intelligence, CROWS cyber-focused teams work with program management, acquisition, engineering, and industry partners to ensure cyber resiliency is baked into every new weapon system, from its inception through production and ultimate deployment, while also ensuring legacy systems are retrofitted to mitigate known vulnerabilities.
EXCELLING ON THE RIGHT OF BOOM
Boom. It’s called a “zero-day” attack, or the moment an adversary attempts to exploit a previously unknown cyber vulnerability.
It’s CROWS’s job to create the mechanisms and procedures to ensure that every Air Force weapon system can absorb such attempts, recover, and complete its assigned objective, regardless of the intensity of the cyber environment. And it can be yours, too.
A TEAM WITHOUT EQUAL ON A MISSION LIKE NO OTHER
CROWS is seeking hundreds of civilian cyber, intel, and engineering professionals versed in system
security engineering, cyber security, trusted systems and networks, anti-tamper, information protection,
and cyber resiliency to fill mission-critical positions at Air Force installations across the nation.
WE ARE AIR FORCE CIVILIAN SERVICE. GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND IS WHAT WE DO BEST.
There’s not a force on the planet that can compete with the U.S. Air Force in air, space, or cyberspace.
One reason for its superiority is the dedication and professionalism of people like you who comprise the
170,000-strong Air Force Civilian Service. Whether it’s caring for the health and well-being of Airmen and
their families, maintaining the equipment and infrastructure that allows the Air Force to be ready at a
moment’s notice, or launching rockets and overseeing the nation’s GPS network, behind every Airman,
every achievement, every milestone—there’s someone like you.

To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
