Abstract : During deliberate planning, the JFC must prepare to synchronize all action of apportioned forces and resources to achieve strategic and operational objectives. This is performed either in parallel with or subsequent to the CINC's campaign plan. Inherent in the JFC's concept of operation is the development of the Joint Air Operations Plan. Responsibility for the development of this plan rests with the JFACC. Although a CINC's campaign plan contains provisions for the planning, coordinating, allocating, and tasking of air assets in support of the JFC, it fails to adequately address provisions for the transfer of JFACC duties to other platforms or to other component commanders as a contingency. This paper will focus on considerations the JFC must anticipate for the expeditious transfer of the JFACC responsibilities without the loss of effective coordination, communication, and capabilities.
