The Air Force will test a new way to distribute tasks for cybersecurity operations in defense. However, delivering capabilities from individual forces might not be the right model for Great Power Competition, a strategic approach towards adversaries that includes renewed emphasis on nuclear deterrence and strengthening NATO and Indo-Pacific military capabilities.
- Timothy Walton, fellow at the Center for Defense Concepts and Technology at the Hudson Institute, argued that the military, in order to more effectively pose dilemmas to adversaries, needs a new approach for joint force design to keep up with new developments in software.
- Walton said the forces have done a great job establishing different software factories but there is a need for more flexibility to move funding around.
- Walton said the new approach would provide more opportunities for combatant commands to provide inputs and would have mission managers track funds for solutions.
