Every Air Force mission depends on information dominance— the operational advantage gained from the ability to collect, control, exploit, and defend information to optimize decision making and maximize war-fighting efforts.

Information that is secure, accurate, reliable, and timely enables information dominance. This provides the war fighter with the best ability to make decisions that outpace their adversary. Innovation alone will not enable information dominance. Rapid and agile acquisition is critical to ensuring IT and operational technology can respond to dynamic
cyber requirements.

Airmen need trusted information in place and across the spectrum of military capabilities to conduct their missions. There are many ways for users to communicate and interface among the networks and systems in the information environment; however, the more avenues users have to communicate and interface, the more risk there is for those systems to collect and deliver trusted information.

Bill Marion, Deputy Chief of Information Dominance and Deputy Chief Information Officer, U.S. Air Force, joined me on The Business of Government Hour to discuss the mission of SAF/CIO A6, the Air Force’s information dominance
strategy and priorities, how the Air Force is changing the way it does IT, and much more. The following is an edited excerpt of our discussion, complemented with additional research.
