Specifically, we have independent organizations functioning under completely different chains of command focused on the very same mission sets and objectives. As a result, the Air Force organizational structure, with respect to most network-related activities and operations, is fractured and extremely inefficient. Furthermore, the USAF does not have a centralized authority responsible to orchestrate collaboration and synergy among the various entities responsible for network concept of operations development, engineering and design, procurement, technician training, tactics, techniques and procedures or doctrine. As a result of what may be view as parochialism or self-preservation, several of these should-be interdependent organizations in fact operate in vacuums, functioning on unsynchronized timelines as self-serving, independent entities.
