Abstract Although the role of airpower in the interagency presents Airmen with unique challenges, it allows creative and innovative solutions for many of the problems facing joint task force (JTF) and combatant commanders. For many of today s officers who find themselves comfortable within their own service or joint military environment, the term interagency conjures images of working with reticent civilians within cumbersome command and control (C2) structures and ill-defined relationships. In fact, Joint Publication (JP) 3-08, Interorganizational Coordination during Joint Operations warns that military policies, processes, and procedures are very different from those of civilian organizations. These differences may present significant challenges to interorganizational coordination. often have different, and sometimes conflicting, goals, policies, procedures, and decision-making techniques, which make unified action a challenge. 1 The fact that the military works within the interagency is not new, but as problems facing the United States become more complex, international, and multifaceted, we can expect the pressure on the interagency process to increase. Consequently, the Air Force must be able to employ airpower effectively during such operations. This article explores the best way to ensure Airmen s effectiveness in the interagency by proposing the joint air component coordination element (JACCE) as a possible solution.
