The U.S. Air Force has issued a new flight plan that details the service’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance goals in the next 10 years in order to maintain technological advantage amid threats posed by near-peer adversaries.

The Next Generation ISR Dominance Flight Plan suggests efforts to advance disruptive technologies; use of cross-domain and multi-role ISR capabilities to build up lethality and readiness; and investments in basic capabilities of partnerships and people to promote culture change, the Air Force reported Thursday.

Lt. Gen. VeraLinn “Dash” Jamieson, deputy chief of staff for ISR, said the service’s future ISR portfolio will be composed of a “multi-domain, multi-intelligence, government/commercial-partnered collaborative sensing grid.”

“It will be resilient, persistent, and penetrating to support a range of options across the spectrum of conflict,” Jamieson added.

The pursuit of disruptive tech and opportunities consists of machine intelligence, agile capability development and data strategy as its three lines of effort, while human capital and partnerships comprise the pathway for driving culture change through investments in foundational capabilities.

The adoption of cross-domain and multi-role ISR for lethality and readiness has five lines of effort and those are high altitude assets; ISR from cyber space; publicly available information; ISR from space operations; and persistent, penetrating, multi-role capabilities.
