Transitioning to Multi-Domain Operations

Air forces will operate in a multi-polar world characterized by persistent, sub-threshold engagements where a multi-layered and multi-speed battlespace will be stretched across huge distances. The ability to outpace threats in real-time will demand agility from the air force not just in moving assets and personnel but also, crucially, information. Unlocking future operational advantage, therefore, hinges on the ability of air forces to enhance connectivity and integration across force, allied, and partner elements so that information- sharing can occur faster and more widely than ever before.
