The current size of the Air Operations Center AOC is too large for rapid deployment and flexible employment. Its size is a reflection of the processes therein. To reduce the size of the AOC, we must change the process for building and executing the Air Tasking Order ATO from a serial process to a parallel one. The approach to this issue is a description and comparison of serial and parallel ATO processes and AOC structures. The conclusion shows the necessary footprint in terms of personnel required for both baseline and objective processes and potential deployment options for the parallel ATO producing AOC.
