Abstract : The Air Force information technology (IT) program balances critical base communications connectivity and information protect needs, while directly supporting the United States Air Force's Global Engagement: A Vision for the 21st Century. Our Air Force core competencies (Air and Space Superiority, Global Attack, Rapid Global Mobility, Precision Engagement, Information Superiority, and Agile Combat Support) are enhanced by these IT programs. Advances in IT will greatly influence the capabilities of the Air Force after next. The IT explosion, coupled with air and space sensor technology advances, will give us systems with computational power to detect, track, and target anything of military significance in near real-time anywhere in the world. This capability has the potential of changing warfare dynamics. New information processes and structures are required for successful future operations. The Air Force is targeting future readiness by implementing revolutionary long-range IT planning that addresses process improvement and systematic modernization. This modernization directly leads to capabilities necessary to support all mission requirements and ensures Air Force IT systems will be secure, interoperable, reliable, and available.
