Summary

The U.S. Air Force has faced significant challenges in its recent operations. Forces have been called into action around the globe on short timelines that allow for neither adequate training or planning, while Air Operations Centers providing theater command and control (C2) have been built on the fly as forces are deployed to each contingency. This paper describes the organization of the C2 force element supporting the Air Force component commander, presents comments and criticisms from senior commanders and top Department of Defense officials regarding the Air Force's ability to command and control airpower in recent operations, and describes new capabilities the theater C2 units need to employ aerospace forces to their greatest effect before and during theater combat operations.
