Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein has said military leaders need a common operating system that will work to collect and assess data as well as provide situational awareness in order to operate in the age of information warfare, DoD News reported Friday.

Jim Garamone writes Goldfein made the remarks Thursday during a conversation with Defense One’s Marcus Weisberger at the Defense One Summit in Washington.

Goldfein said the service branch has started the Data to Decision experiment that aims to collect data from all domains and put the information into a single common operating platform.

He also cited the need for novel technology platforms designed for use in intelligence analysis, Garamone reports.

“We got to get into the next stage, which is machine-to-machine, human/machine teaming, and artificial intelligence — to turn all that data into decision-quality information and then you act,” he said.

Goldfein, who assumed his post in July, told Weisberger that he aims to facilitate discussions on the future of joint warfare and combined arms, the report added.
