Air Force Cyberspace Symposium

16 July 2008

Lt Gen Michael Peterson

Chief of Warfighting Integration and Chief Information Officer

our priorities are clear
Our Priorities are Clear
  • Win Today’s Fight…

…Global Vigilance, Global Reach, Global Power

  • Take Care of Our People…

…Airmen are our most valuable “weapon”

  • Prepare for Tomorrow’s Challenges…

…Airmen must have the right tools

we have work to do
We Have Work to Do
  • It’s Cyberspace with a Capital “C”
  • AF Consensus on a Way Ahead
  • Doctrine
  • Organizational Structures
  • Cyber Capabilities
  • Force Development

Leveraging an Information-Rich Environment

Current Configuration

Target Configuration

  • Stove-piped connectivity solutions
  • Reliant on voice communications
  • Limited information sharing
  • Minimal air-to-ground connectivity
  • Standardized connectivity solutions
  • Voice and data exchange
  • Robust information sharing
  • Integrated air-space-ground networks

Controlling an Integrated Network Requires a Robust C2 System!

air force cyber control system
Air Force Cyber Control System
  • Cyber Control System: Produces and manages effects-based operations in the electromagnetic spectrum by directing essential NetOps tasks & enabling Network Attack operations.
  • Like in the aerospace domain (with IADS), commanders need the same capability with their IT systems in cyberspace!
    • Centralized Cyberspace (Battlefield) Global Situational Awareness
      • “Normal” Network Traffic vs. Attack?
    • Effective / Efficient Cyber C2
    • Information Dissemination
    • Sensors

Operating the CCS Requires a Highly Trained Cyber Workforce!

Advanced Tactical Data-LinkTactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT)
  • Working to replace legacy data-links like Link-16
  • TTNT is the leading candidate under the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program
  • High-throughput (10 Mbps), IP-based airborne networking
  • Integrating on the F-22A for high-threat operations

TTNT extends our digital network to the battlefield


Objective Airborne Gateway

From concept demonstration in JEFX… …to established Air Force program

Airborne gateways bridge the air, ground, and space networks

Leveraging Cyberspace in GWOTDeployed Battlefield Air Operations Kit
  • AFSOC Special Tactics Battlefield Air Operations (BAO) Kit deployed with all Special Tactics personnel
    • Blue force tracking, targeting, moving maps, Small / Micro UAVs
    • Feeds JSOTF and AOC Weapon Systems (JADOCS)
  • No manual entry, all machine to machine
  • Reduces approval to execution time by 70%
