About the Event
In January 2024, Air Combat Command will host the annual Command and Control Summit, where senior leaders from the Department of the Air Force (DAF), across the Department of Defense, and partners and allies will discuss progress toward achieving globally integrated operations. The DAF continues to work toward the vision of Joint All-Domain Command and Control, which seeks to integrate C2 of all the warfighting domains into a common digital infrastructure that can manage joint and combined operations at the speed and scale needed for future conflicts against highly capable adversaries. This panel will discuss critical issues in advance of the C2 Summit: Where has the DAF shown progress? How can the DAF surmount the technical, organizational, and policy obstacles that remain? How can the DAF leverage partner and ally capabilities?
The panel will feature:
- Dr. Sherrill Lingel, RAND Corporation (moderator)
- General Kenneth S. Wilsbach, Commander, PACAF (nominated as Commander, ACC)
- Dr. Bonnie L. Triezenberg, RAND Corporation
- Dr. Brien Alkire, RAND Corporation
- Ms. Kristin F. Lynch, RAND Corporation
