The Configurable Aerospace Command and Control CACC program is an evolving concept for a virtual Command and Control C2 capability that is responsive to the dynamic nature of the future AF operations. It is driven by the needs of the future Joint Force Air Component Commander JFACC to be able to respond to a variety of operational scenarios ranging from Major Regional Conflicts MRC to Operations Other Than War OOTW. To respond to this spectrum of requirements with the new Expeditionary Aerospace Force FAF concept, key elements of the C2 capability will have to be deployed with the Expeditionary Air Forces FAFs. To meet the demands of rapid response and minimal airlift, the initial deployed elements will, of necessity, be limited in physical capacity. Heavy dependence will be made of reach back to in-garrison assets to perform many of the C2 functions in collaboration with the deployed elements. As the operation proceeds, the C2 field requirements and needs will change with the evolution of the operation. The CACC will demonstrate the ability of a C2 information system to adapt to the changing needs of dynamic battle management.
