Gen. David Goldfein, chief of staff at the U.S. Air Force, unveiled the service branch's plans to incorporate networked multi-domain capabilities.

“Victory in future combat will depend less on individual capabilities and more on the integrated strengths of a connected network available for coalition leaders to employ,” Goldfein said in a statement published Tuesday. Goldfein noted that the Air Force intends to refine its multi-domain operations to deter potential adversaries.

“If we’ve done our jobs right as leaders organizing, training and equipping our service for multi-domain operations and selecting and developing the leaders needed for this future fight, our Airmen will excel at multi-domain operations because we will have built it into every exercise scenario and war game."

Goldfein added that USAF needs to update its nuclear weaponry and invest in a capacity that can defend itself, endure in enemy areas and optimize other technologies that can cause confusion to adversaries.
