Abstract:

The information and communications technology ICT field is undergoing a period of tremendous and rapid change. As ICT develops more rapidly, the United States Air Force needs to remain responsive and adaptive to maintain military advantages. The need to integrate ICT developments sooner than our adversaries prompted an assessment of guidelines evaluating how well the AF is doctrinally positioned from a Command and Control perspective to support integration of emerging ICT. A Delphi Study was commissioned by the 689th CCW to forecast the future of mobile Information and Communication Technology ICT in austere environments. Using the ICT forecast data as a basis, the panel provided inputs on the integration concerns the forecasted trends invoked and the effects of the forecast on the Measures of Effectiveness outlined in AF doctrine.
