The Air Force has released an infographic summarizing its “cyber flight plan”—a highly classified document outlining one of the four pillars the service plans to use to engage the nation’s adversaries in the grey zone of hybrid warfare.

According to the infographic, the flight plan lays out three “lines of effort” in cyber, as well as seven annexes, dealing with policy areas the authors believe require emphasis.

The three lines of effort are:

  • Foundational capabilities: talent management and training
  • Readiness and lethality: growing operational capabilities
  • Emerging/disruptive technologies: using open architecture and agile development to “bring new capabilities to the fight.”
