The U.S. Air Force began reorganizing and unifying its headquarters' information technology, cyber and intelligence operations, Federal News Network reported Wednesday. USAF's new approach would combine the three technical areas into one organization, merging the branch's deputy chief of staff offices for information dominance and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
Matt Donovan, undersecretary of the Air Force, said the service branch intends to nominate Lt. Gen. VeraLinn Jamieson as the prospective leader of the combined organization. Jamieson is USAF's current deputy chief of staff for ISR.
The service branch first disclosed the combined organization's preliminary plans in August when Gen. David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, discussed USAF's need for tighter integration in information domain decision making, the report noted.
