The role of information technologies has played a significant role in conducting military operations since Operation Desert Storm. Over the past ten years, the Air Force Research Laboratorys Information Directorate AFRLIF located in Rome NY has directly supported the warfighter by transitioning critical technologies through the Air Force Command and Control Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance Centers AFC2ISRC Combined Air Operations Center Experimental CAOC-X. The CAOC-X is part of AFC2ISRCs efforts to rapidly develop and field capabilities critical to the warfighter utilizing the spiral development model of system acquisition. These technologies are designed to support the warfighter through all phases of conflict as well as providing support to various Homeland Defense initiatives. This paper provides a short summary of each of the various technologies that have been transitioned since the CAOC-Xs inception in 2000 as well as some near term candidates for transition in the future. The technologies discussed are Broadsword, Adaptive Sensor Fusion, Cognitive Desktop Manager, Web-enabled Timeline Analysis System WebTAS, Information Support Server Environment ISSE Guard, Trusted Transfer Agent TTA, Master Caution Panel MCP, and lastly, the Joint Targeting Toolbox JTT efforts that AFRLIF has successfully transferred to the warfighter through the CAOC-X at Langley AFB, VA.
