Abstract : The Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) concept has been significantly developed over the last few years, yet it is still a cause for controversy among warfighters engaged at every level of warfare. As a functional component commander for the Joint Force Commander or possibly a CINC, the JFACC is oriented to operate at the operational level of war (and operations other than war). This paper discusses how the JFACC interacts at the strategic/operational level and also at the operational-tactical level and makes recommendations on how (and why) to keep the JFACC focused on the operational level.
