Abstract : Victory in war goes to those forces with the most accurate knowledge, strongest protection, most robust communication, best coordination, dominant force structure, and most dynamic operations. In the thoughts that follow, we expand upon these facets of military power by describing information applications that will be important to the Air Force in the years to come. This short summary introduces accompanying monographs written by individual members of the panel. Our monographs contain comments and recommendations that speak to each of the following goals for 21st century aerospace power: Get the right knowledge, to the right place, at the right time for all aerospace missions; Protect all Air Force computers, software, and data, regardless of platform or location, particularly those involved in warfighting; Achieve global communication between the air, ground, and space assets of the Air Force, as well as those with whom we operate; Maximize the speed and quality of Air Force coordination, planning, and execution; Dominate the information battlespace; Develop doctrine needed for the use of information in dynamic command and control of joint forces. This introductory monograph also provides some comments on information science in the Air Force laboratory system.
