Lt. Gen. VeraLinn Jamieson: Sensors, Hypersonics Could Be Part of USAF’s Future ISR Grid

Air Force Lt. Gen. VeraLinn “Dash” Jamieson, deputy chief of staff for the service’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, has said the military branch’s future ISR architecture could include hypersonics, spaced-based sensors and drone swarms, C4ISRNET reported Wednesday.

Jamieson said in a Tuesday interview that the future ISR grid could feature a “balanced portfolio” of persistent and stand-off weapons capabilities.

She also discussed the Air Force’s new flight plan that details the service’s ISR goals in the next decade and the role of artificial intelligence in the analysis of data derived from sensors and other systems.

“If you are not first in developing artificial intelligence and the means to employ — with structured data, with the infrastructure to support that, with a multi-cloud approach — you’re going to be last because catch up in this arena with disruptive technologies, it’s too hard and it’s too fast,” Jamieson added.
