Navy Reserve Information Warfare Officers (formerly Cryptology)

Cryptology in the Navy Reserve combines two related skills -- cryptography and cryptanalysis. Cryptography is the area of disguising communications to protect them. Cryptanalysis is the art of deciphering the coded communications of others.

Navy Reserve Information Warfare Officers are trained in the Navy Reserve Security Group to operate and maintain specialized electronic equipment such as radio receivers, antennas, recorders and computers. Annual Training assignments can be at Naval Security Group sites in the United States or overseas and the National Security Agency.

Basic Education Requirement

Bachelor's or postgraduate degree from an accredited college in Mathematics, Electronics, Physics or calculus-based Computer Science. Prior service or experience as a Cryptologic Technician a huge plus.

Age Requirement

At least 19 but less than 40 at time of appointment. Age waiver to 42 granted for prior military service.

Special Requirements

Applicant and Immediate family members must be U.S. citizens (waivers available for family members if not US citizens). Applicants must successfully complete a Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI). Applicants must not have history of arrests, financial bankruptcy, or poor employment record in order to qualify for the necessary Top Secret security clearance.
