Delivering Decision Advantage
Air Force intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) provides global vigilance—our hedge against strategic uncertainty and risk—to the Air Force, the joint war fighter, and our nation. Our mission, in defense of America’s interests, is to enable decision advantage by operating integrated, cross-domain ISR capabilities with joint, national, and international partners. Our Air Force ISR vision is to be the preeminent ISR enterprise providing the right information to the right decision makers at the right time. Our objective is to provide our nation’s decision makers, commanders, and war fighters with a continual information advantage over our adversaries—an advantage measured not in terms of the volume of information gathered but in the value and quality of the intelligence we provide. The fundamental job of Air Force ISR professionals is to answer questions by engaging decision makers at all levels in a dialogue that seeks to refine what they need to know in order to make decisions, command forces, and employ weapons.
