The Information Warfare Directorate (IWD, formerly Information Warfare Wing) of the Royal Australian Air Force's Air Warfare Centre (AWC)[1] is the Australian Defence Force's central institution dealing with tactical information warfare.[2]

Although under the command of the Air Force, the IWD draws personnel from both the Australian Army and Navy. In turn the IWD develops and manages information warfare capabilities for land and maritime theatres in addition to aerospace.
