Air Force To Finish Study On ISR Needs By Early 2018

The U.S. Air Force’s Air Combat Command (ACC) expects to finish a study on future intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR) and strike capabilities in late 2017 or early 2018, according to the command.

The study, or capabilities-based assessment (CBA), began in December to “identify needed capabilities and associated capability gaps” that the Air Force could eventually translate into formal requirements, ACC spokeswoman Erica Vega said Nov. 7. The assessment is reviewing both manned and unmanned platforms.

The CBA could lead to another study, an analysis of alternatives (AoA), which would evaluate “potential materiel solutions” to address capability gaps, Vega told Defense Daily in a written response to questions.
