Maj. Gen. Brett Williams

The Air Force is placing more emphasis on capabilities relating to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in response to budget reductions, Federal Computer Week reported.

At a briefing Feb. 6, Air Force officials said their main concerns include gathering intelligence from large amounts of data, securing cyberspace and training new airmen.

Brig. Gen. Scott Bethel, vice commander of the Air Force’s ISR agency, said the Air Force is working on cross-cuing tools where sensors communicate automatically with each other.

Maj. Gen. Brett Williams said the Air Force will also address cyber threats that could damage critical infrastructure.

Williams added the the Air Force will assess risks and determine what its most valuable technological assets are.
