Information Operations

Information operations are military actions that are designed to shape perceptions and influence the will, capability and understanding of a target audience in support of the commander’s campaign plan. This may involve reassuring a civilian population, disrupting a supply chain, deterring aggression, destroying a key military target, defeating an adversary or persuading them to surrender.

This relies on thorough intelligence and robust, secure and reliable communications. You will work with personnel in Electronic Warfare, Psychological Operations, Operational Security, Operational Deception, Media Operations, Civil Military Co-operation and Physical Destruction.

Reservists with a civilian background in advertising, sales and marketing or PR are ideally suited to this specialisation, but anybody with the right motivation can join.
