  • The United States Air Force is a premier organization that provides our Nation a vast array of capabilities in air, space and cyberspace. We are at war, and the capabilities we provide the joint mission are vital to winning today’s fight Our ability to innovate and integrate these capabilities contributes to our security as we contend with an uncertain future Whether conventional fight, irregular warfare, humanitarian relief operations, or deterrence and dissuasion of potential adversaries, the Air Force is a key contributor to the strategic defense of America. This mission statement meets departmental requirements as defined in Title 10 of the U.S. Code – the Air Force shall be organized, trained, and equipped primarily for prompt and sustained offensive and defensive air operations The Air Force is responsible for the preparation of the air forces necessary for the effective prosecution of war except as otherwise assigned and, in accordance with integrated joint mobilization plans, for the expansion of the peacetime components of the Air Force to meet the needs of war Actions undertaken to achieve these objectives contribute to the joint team’s support of the National Defense Strategy  
  • Reinvigorate the Nuclear Enterprise The Air Force must restore the Nation’s trust and confidence regarding the entire nuclear enterprise Two goals Meet Recognized Benchmarks for Nuclear Surety. - We will comply with recommendations and findings from internal and external commissions. In addition, the Air Force will prioritize investments to reduce capability gaps in the Nuclear Deterrence Operations Service Core Function across Joint Capability Areas Improve Focus on the Nuclear Mission – We will improve focus on the nuclear mission by organizing to reduce fragmentation of authority; training, evaluating and exercising to meet nuclear deterrent mission demands; and ensuring the nuclear deterrent mission area is properly resourced for needed future capabilities Partner with Joint and Coalition Team to Win Today’s Fight The Air Force remains committed, first and foremost, to supporting the Joint warfighter by providing Global Vigilance, Reach, and Power We will be prepared to act in both “supporting” and “supported” roles as dictated by the objectives of the joint or combined commanders Continue to improve our contributions to Irregular Warfare and the Global War on Terror, dissuade competitors from entering military competitions, deter adversaries threatening aggression and, if needed, defeat conventional and irregular adversaries We will accomplish this by: Supporting Combatant Commanders at All Levels, Particularly in the Global War on Terror and Ongoing Irregular Warfare Operations Bolstering ISR Support for Joint Operations Building Global Partnerships Develop and Care for Airmen and their Families Airmen are the Air Force’s most valuable resource, and the Air Force remains committed to recruiting and retaining the world’s highest quality force We will and must ensure that we are preparing Airmen for the challenges of today and tomorrow Ensure Airmen Possess the Appropriate Skills to Conduct Joint Operations in Air, Space, and Cyberspace Sustain Deployed and Home Station Quality of Service Modernize our Aging Air and Space Inventories Fundamental to our Air Force is the ability to exploit air, space, and cyberspace As the Nation adapts to an evolving threat environment across the spectrum of operations, the Air Force must maintain a comprehensive set of capabilities – organizations, Airmen, and equipment – available to a Joint Force Commander in any scenario Acquisition Excellence While DoD has shown an ability to rapidly develop, acquire and deploy technology, such as Unmanned Aerial Systems, and Remotely Operated Video Enhanced Receivers (ROVERs), to meet urgent warfighter needs, these are the exceptions to a larger trend in the Air Force that recapitalization is neither timely nor adequately funded The Air Force must improve its ability to manage complex procurements and ensure that our acquisition processes reflect the highest standards of rigor and transparency Rebuild and Shape the Acquisition Workforce Continue to Improve Acquisition Processes and Skills Enforce Stability in Requirements, CONOPS, Funding
  • SAF/XC History History of XC: The Office of Warfighting Integration and Chief Information Officer (SAF/XC) was established within the Secretariat on May 10, 2005. Office consolidated all Air Force information technology organizations under a single umbrella by combining the former Air Force Chief Information Officer; Deputy Chief of Staff, Warfighting Integration, and Directorate of Communications. The consolidation brought the functional strengths of each pervious organization together: AF/XI - brought about by Gen Jumper and primarily focused on Air and Space C4ISR AF-CIO - focused on Business Process and systems modernization AF/ILC - provides Day-to-Day Communications Operations support...AF/A6 What is SAF/XC: Integrates AF Air, Space and Cyberspace information and systems into the joint fight by directing policy and advocating for resources to provide secure, reliable and timely information to the Joint Warfighter The single advocate for IT resources, technology, governance and workforce to meet warfighter needs XC is dual “hatted" – SAF/XC reports to both the Chief (HAF) and Secretary (SAF)
  • SAF/XC currently performs three roles: warfighting integration, CIO duties as mandated in Title 40 and the more traditional A6 Air Staff-type functions. The gray bullets are functions that we have transferred either to the CMO office or AFSPC. How Other Services Organize Army – G6/CIO is a dual-hatted 3-Star Reports to CSA as G6 and to Sec Army as CIO Navy – Combining N2/6 into 3-Star lead Information Dominance Deputy CNO, dual-hatted as Deputy CIO Reports to CNO as N2/6 and CIO as Deputy CIO CIO: Civilian 3-Star equiv, reports to SecNav Marines – Director, C4/CIO dual-hatted 1-Star Reports to Commandant as Director of C4 and to Navy CIO as Marine Corps CIO
  • Pres Obama created new Cybersecurity Coordinator in May 2009. “I will personally select this official.  I'll depend on this official in all matters relating to cybersecurity, and this official will have my full support and regular access to me as we confront these challenges.” The office will fulfill:  orchestrating and integrating all cybersecurity policies for the government; working closely with the Office of Management and Budget to ensure agency budgets reflect those priorities; and, in the event of major cyber incident or attack, coordinating our response. Will be a member of the National Security Staff and National Economic Council.  SOURCE: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/Remarks-by-the-President-on-Securing-Our-Nations-Cyber-Infrastructure/ Cyber PAD (Program Action Directive) was signed on 20 February and 15 May, announced location at Lackland, AFB A NAF dedicated to cyberspace will provide combat-ready forces trained and equipped to conduct sustained cyber operations, fully integrated with air and space operations. A Cyber NAF under AFSPC enables cross-domain synergy, aligns common technical expertise, and facilitates career development, sustainment and acquisition programs. Consolidating cyberspace combat forces within a cyber-focused NAF emphasizes their operational nature, establishes a nexus of existing Air Force combat experience in the domain, and allows flexibility for future growth.

  • Intent of this slide: General organization of SAF/XC. 2008’s Cyber PAD - loss of AFCA and AFFMA “ AFCA remains the service’s center of excellence…for network integration…and its members will remain communications experts under AFSPC and not be diluted with the generic label as cyber warriors.” (Gen Robert Kehler AFSPC/CC) AFAMS reports through XCD (Warfighter and Intel Delivery)
  • Intent of this slide: General organization of SAF/XC. Also – last year SAF/XC reorganized it’s day-to-day work structure according to mission areas which utilize processes to accomplish the work. The white boxes represent the 12 processes and their rough alignment to the overall org structure. AFAMS will continue to report through XCD
