Maj. Gen. Jack Shanahan, head of the Air Force’s ISR agency, believes the service is unlikely to make cuts on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Aaron Mehta writes Shanahan is betting the future of Air Force ISR operations on international partnerships and training.

He outlined during a conference outside Washington, D.C., a collaboration concept of pooling resources and gathering international partners together, according to the report.

“Most of these other countries have not invested the amount they would all, as militaries, have liked to invest in ISR. They see the importance of it,” Shanahan said.Air Force logo

The Air Force ISR chief also told the conference that the service is working to address security issues associated with sharing sensitive information with partners, Defense News reports.

Shanahan added that training investments are necessary in order to fulfill future ISR requirements, the report says.
