The Air Force wants to make sharing information more fluid, both between internal systems and other military branches. Through Joint Command and Control, the military could work together, and make tactical moves quickly and effectively. Deborah Lee James, former Secretary of the Air Force, says the branches are making progress in these efforts.
“First of all, we have to keep our eye on the ball, and I know Gen. Goldfein, and I have to believe Ms. Barrett is also keeping their eye on the ball, to evangelize and get the other services on board. And so far, the Navy has said they are coming on board, and I think the Army will be the next one to follow,” says James. “Meanwhile the Joint Staff has gotten involved, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. They have put together a cross functional team to try and link up the different parallel efforts going on and try to bring those together in a more coherent whole.”
