Title Who's on First. Command and Control in AirSea Battle.
Publication Date May 2012
Media Count 29p
Personal Author P. Shoemaker
Abstract The AirSea Battle concept is gaining traction and momentum both within the hallowed halls of the Pentagon and across the United States Air Force and Navy. As high-level decision makers armed with advancing technology and new tactics, techniques, and procedures grapple with budgetary constraints, the Departments of the Navy and Air Force must integrate to guarantee freedom of movement for military forces and also for the maritime trade servicing the world's economy. This paper will explore how AirSea Battle is an adaptive application of naval and air forces designed to counter Anti-Access/Area-Denial environments. Specifically, the Command and Control of this joint concept should incorporate the Composite Warfare Commander structure currently used by the United States Navy. By applying the Composite Warfare Commander concept to the Joint Task Force command structure, we will better accomplish the objectives of AirSea Battle.
