Abstract : The United States Air Force is the premier air and space force with the ability to reach across the spectrum of military and humanitarian operations. The impact of the Air Force on war operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and its actions in the service of humanitarian assistance is without equal. The ongoing transformation of the force and the development and refining of operational and organizational processes and strategies has amplified the ability to respond to unpredictable situations. By leveraging technology to integrate air and space capabilities the Air Force gains an asymmetric advantage for the nation. In the future the Air Force will continue to prepare for emerging threats as well as such the transformational envelope. As a resource for the Congress, the handbook presents a convenient format while outlining a selection of major priorities.
