Abstract : This paper deals with JFACC afloat; an evolutionary application of the joint force air component commander (JFACC) concept developed by the naval service for operations in theaters where no suitable shore basing site exists. This scenario is most likely during the initial stages of a campaign, in maritime forced entry operations or prior to land force arrival. Explication for different models of JFACC afloat is derived from examination of the warfighting continuum. A short history of JFACC, explanation of the JFACC process and a review of the tenets of aerospace power are included. The final portion of this paper is a proposal for a restructured air operations planning scheme for naval operations. (KAR) P. 1
