   Studies and Working Group Reports  

  • Creating a Combat Cloud for the 21st Century:  Aircraft can act as both capable sensors and shooters. Future developments in data sharing promise to dramatically enhance the way in which combat effects are attained as individual aerospace assets are fully integrated with sea, land, space and cyber systems in an omni-present, self-forming, self-healing defense complex. Individuals systems connected to the broader “combat cloud” are able to leverage their respective strengths, while simultaneously circumventing specific weaknesses and vulnerabilities. How to design an architecture to achieve this capability in a synchronized manner to attain desired effects is the goal of this effort. 
  • Command and Control for the Information Age:  Recognizing that large, centralized, static command and control enterprises impede decision cycle advantages and project undue vulnerability, this study will explore opportunities presented by a mobile, distributed command and control system. This new approach affords adequate capacity necessary to handle the same volume and diversity of information as a current regional combined air operations center.
  • A Consortium Approach to Security Strategy:  The pairing of an increasingly complex global security environment with sequestration-driven fiscal constraints demands that the United States fully leverage international coalition-based security solutions.  This will require a paradigm shift in the ends, ways and means we conduct acquisition, training, engagement, policy, and treaty design and execution.
