C4ISR ? command, control, communications, computers, intelligence,
surveillance and reconnaissance ? touches every part of the Air Force
and is therefore the heart of the service's transformation. That's why
the Air Force will begin regular reviews of enterprise capabilities,
with the first one planned for next month.

Maj. Gen. Craig Weston, vice commander of the Air Force Materiel
Command's Electronic Systems Center (ESC), Hanscom Air Force Base,
Mass., said the service separates its C4ISR enterprise into four

* Combat operations.
* Combat support.
* Business operations.
* Common integrated infrastructure, which is the Air Force's information

The first three domains overlap, and all are supported by the common
infrastructure, but now the service wants to know what progress is being
made in integrating all four areas, Weston said, speaking Nov. 13 at Air
Force IT Day sponsored by the Northern Virginia chapter of the Armed
Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) International.

horizontally integrating the four domains," Weston told FCW.

chairman of the review, which will take place the first week of

"There's no doubt we'll have to make adjustments as we decide what the
right things are to measure and the right things to status," Weston told
FCW. "It's an evolving review and will change as we get smarter in the
review process."
