Abstract : The Air Force Information Technology (IT) program maintains the mission-essential infrastructure and automated information systems (AIS) necessary to conduct and sustain combat operations. The program also provides the resources necessary to keep existing IT systems technologically current and to develop new systems. The Air Force strongly supports the IT program, realizing that the substantial investment of resources associated with it will provide the efficiencies and increased productivity to enable the downsizing of our forces and to meet the warfighters' exponentially increasing demands for data. The IT budget request also supports the Department's implementation of its Corporate Information Management (CIM) initiatives and the Administration's National Information Infrastructure (NII) program. The Air Force's Defense Information Infrastructure (DII) resources provide for local and worldwide information needs through computer, communications, data applications, and support resources. They provide common-user voice, data, imagery, video, and multimedia services. The Air Force is aggressively implementing initiatives that will significantly enhance its infrastructure. (KAR) p. 5
