This thesis provides signposts to guide the Royal Australian Air Force during its journey through the development of a cyber capability. As with most journeys, there are always multiple paths; the challenge is to choose a path that will deliver an effective cyber force with the available resources. The emergence of cyberspace changed the character of war in ways Clausewitz could never have imagined. Cyber violence transcends the physical environment, creating effects on an adversary's warfighting capabilities as severe as a kinetic weapon. Uncertainty, the fog that envelopes all aspects of conflict, remains ever-present; however, cyber enables commanders greater situation awareness, shifting the shade of fog from opaque to translucent.
