据c4isrnet网2020年6月11日报道,6月11日,负责情报、侦察、监视与网络战的副参谋长马里•布里恩中将宣布,美空军新的信息战司令部于3月设立一个作战中心,以促进空军信息相关能力的综合集成。

18个月来,空军调整情报机构,通过整合两个空军单位,即第24空军部队和第25空军部队,于去年秋天设立空军第一家信息战部队“第16空军部队”。

空军发布了《网络飞行计划》,旨在指导空军未来10年的网络战。

空军正在将《2018年ISR飞行计划》和《2019年网络战飞行计划》合并,形成统一的未来10年计划。

Integration is the next step for Air Force information warfare leaders

Following a significant merger and reorganization of its intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and cyber enterprises, Air Force leaders are turning their attention to how these functions can work more closely together.

“We’re maturing this organization, moving past merging and focusing on integration,” Lt. Gen. Mary O’Brien, deputy chief of staff for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and cyber effects operations, said during a Joint Service Academy Cybersecurity Conference webinar June 11. “We find that our intelligence and cyber roles are focused increasingly interdependent and interconnected.”

The Air Force’s new information warfare command will open an operations center in March as part of a broader effort to better integrate the service’s information-related capabilities.

Within the last 18 months, the Air Force reconfigured its intelligence shop, formerly known as the deputy chief of staff for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and added cyber effects operations. That change was followed by the merger of two numbered Air Forces – 24th Air Force and 25th Air Force – to create 16th Air Force last fall, the service’s first information warfare entity.

The Air Force released its cyber flight plan, aimed at guiding the service in the cyber realm for the next decade.

Officials have said in this new setup the deputy chief of staff handles the workforce, concepts, training, platforms, tools and integration. This is done so operators at 16th Air Force have the guidance they need.

O’Brien added that the Air Force is now working at integrating the 2018 ISR flight plan and the 2019 cyber warfare flight plan. Each sought to chart a path for how the Air Force will fight in each respective area into the next decade as part of a great power competition.

The ISR flight plan examined transforming the enterprise to meet future threats as opposed to modernization. The cyber flight guided funding, resourcing, training and capabilities for Air Force cyber offices.

O’Brien also said integration related to network defense has proven critical with the increased telework during the pandemic.

Intelligence and cyber experts are “identifying the threats and they’re posturing to defend against them,” she said. “This was not always the case.”
