About Air Force Civilian Service
As civilians, we share the same responsibility to our nation as the men and women in uniform. We share the same passion as well. Shoulder to shoulder, we harness the energy to meet every challenge.
Working in over 600 occupations and professions we are the backbone of the Air Force. We are engineers working in research labs and social workers helping kids acclimate to new environments. We are physicians treating Airmen and their families. We are cyber security experts on the front line guarding against hackers. We are police officers, aircraft mechanics, nuclear physicists, and mathematicians. We are HR professionals, electricians, and rocket scientists. And so much more.
USAF is renowned for its unparalleled innovation and deployment of paradigm-shifting systems. AFCS is helping drive that innovation with a focus on breakthroughs in technology and in human potential.
To that end, we maintain research facilities and dedicated laboratories in 22 locations around the country. Staffed by over 16,000 civilians, these labs are on the cutting edge of discovery and innovation, and our scientists and engineers work with technology and advanced equipment unavailable anywhere else.
