Removing them from the mix, were AFSPC and the AFISRA joined, would allow the newly formed AFC41SRC to concentrate on becoming the premier supplier of C41SR effects, a support function, to warriors across the Department of Defense and the intelligence community.
General Deptula's vision for the AFISRA is proceeding along those lines.
Such a system would also minimize (by almost a factor of two) the overhead money required to set up MAJCOMs that organize, train, and equip; instead of ACC, AFSPC, AFCYBER, and the AFISRA, we would now fund only a combat command and a combat support command.
Koziol, commander of the AFISRA, succinctly puts it, "We must focus on how we achieve and assess effects, not where." (15)
Apparently reacting to the same perceived proclivity among officers within the space community to favor platform over effect, the Air Force recently announced the formation of the very effects-based AFISRA. (17) This new agency may soon have the mandate to take a large portion of the current AFSPC portfolio--and then morph into a MAJCOM of its own--in order to deliver coordinated space/airborne ISR effects to the war fighter.
Currently, stand-up of the AFISRA essentially involves only renaming the former Air Intelligence Agency, previously located under ACC.
