Abstract : The purpose of this research project is to explore interoperability challenges of disseminating the Air Tasking Order (ATO) at the operational level of war. As the United States military fights more wars in a coalition environment, system and international interoperability between and among coalition partners will continue to be a key consideration of coalition warfare. The aim of this paper is to first study the current method of ATO dissemination and then explore alternative methods of dissemination. Finally, the paper will conclude by highlighting an ATO dissemination method for further study.
