Abstract : Dual Key Command and Control in Operation Deny Flight: Paralyzed by Design Operation Deny Flight's parallel command had difficulty authorizing the use of force. This impaired NATO's ability to fulfill its three primary missions: (1) enforcing a no-fly zone, (2) providing close air support to protect UNPROFOR, and (3) conducting airstrikes to protect threatened U.N.-declared safe areas. Each of these three missions required the timely application of airpower. The timely authorization to use that force was impeded by slow decisions, poor delegation of authority, and conflicting objectives.
