23 IW BL Mission Influencing Doctrine & Tactics to Organize, Train, and Equip Forces Suppliers IW Disciplines PSYOP Deception Destruction EW Security Info Attack Customers MAJCOMs NAFs Ops Units Air & Space Power Rapid Global Mobility Information Superiority Air and Space Superiority Agile Combat Support Precision Engagement Global Attack Advance Core Competencies Industry MAJCOMs Doctrine Ctr Battlelabs Ops Units

24 A capability for innovations in IW to be rapidly discovered, developed, and/or demonstrated through warfighter interaction with new tactics, techniques, procedures and technologies that may affect AF doctrine and strategy; focused at operational and tactical levels of war. What the IWB IS: Enable operator feedback Accelerate fielding of IW advancements and technologies Select “best of breed” concepts and capabilities Exploit opportunities for technology insertion Propose new capabilities, architectures, tactics and doctrine OBJECTIVESOBJECTIVES Principal Customers: AF Warfighters -- MAJCOMs, NAFs, IW Flights, Network Control Centers, and Doctrine Center

25 IW Data Support for Remote Users (IW Reachback) Connect remote users with SCI data using existing low-cost satellite relay Army incorporated system into Miniature Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) Electronic System Center evolved system into S-band Tactical Automated Receive terminal (STAR) Migrated into the Tactical Data Processing System (TDPS)

26 Sensor Guard Secret and SCI level intelligence reachback capability for globally deployed force protect units via existing networks Electronic mail, message traffic, voice connectivity Standard office automation software and hardware

27  Impact – Increase situational awareness for AOC CC – Rapidly Identify IW opportunities – Determine most efficient use of assets – Protect most critical friendly nodes IW Visualization & Integration IW Visualization & Integration Platform (Cyberwarrior)

30 Reconfigurable Electronic Warfare Avionics Parts (REWRAP) Multire-configurable cards Multi purpose re-configurable cards EXPECTED RESULTS: - Increased deployability - Single logistics trail - Fewer types of spares needed- Reduced cost per unit - Possible common use of parts (within a system or systems)

31 UNCLASSIFIED CHAT ROOM UNCLASSIFIED Technology Developments UNCLASSIFIED Related systems throughout the World UNCLASSIFIED Discussion on System A UNCLASSIFIED System A Developments UNCLASSIFIED THREAT SYSTEM DISCUSSIONS UNCLASSIFIED u Use Intelligent Agents to collect, analyze and correlate web data u Identify possible OPSEC problems u Continuous monitoring Software Agents for OPSEC

32 More Concepts Miniaturized Global Positioning System Jammer –GPS jamming of our adversaries from a low cost, easily deployed and concealed battery-power unit Signal Analysis Mapping (SAM) –An anomaly prediction system that allows aircrews to better discriminate between threat and non-threat emitters Voice Optimal Interrogation and Characterization Environment (VOICE) –Rapidly digitize, translate, visualize voice communication collections

33 Experiments Information Assurance (IA) Tools experiment to synchronize planning and development efforts among CINCs, Services, and Agencies Participants: –Joint Battle Center –Army, Navy, and AF IW Battlelabs –JIOC –DISA Benefits: –Identified IA tools for the near term –Described standard IA toolkit for the JTF –Preparation for Expeditionary Force Experiment

34 Future Challenges Increase Information and System Protection Greater play in Joint Exercises/Experiments Integrate Information Attack functions Seek Opportunities to Make the IO Force More Effective and Lethal Improve Information Available to Customers Explore Initiatives With Broader Operational Impact

35 Bottom Line High-tech tools are readily available We have to stay ahead of our adversaries Information Warfare is not about technology Information Warfare is about exploiting technology “Dominating the information spectrum is as critical to conflict now as occupying the land or controlling the air has been in the past.” Gen Fogleman, AF Chief of Staff
