Air Force Combines Cyber, ISR Teams to Boost Operations Coordination

The U.S. Air Force has begun reorganizing to have cyber-focused personnel and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance teams in a single office to increase coordination of military operations. The service branch said on Friday that combining the functions of the staffs would break barriers and streamline oversight, policy and guidance in a range of operations.

The reorganization also involves elevating chief information officer roles to focus on statutory responsibilities. The merged personnel will operate under Lt. Gen. VeraLinn Jamieson, the newly-appointed deputy chief of staff for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and cyber effects operations.

Jamieson was confirmed by the Senate to take the position on March 1.
