The way we fight wars continues to evolve, and this evolution is largely driven by technology as well as the increasing capabilities that technology provides to individual warfighters. Coordination between services like the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force has become more critical with time as well. With these ideas in mind, the Air Force is examining multi-domain spaces, and looking for joint solutions to problems presented by the growing abilities of our adversaries. Some of these solutions are likely to include decentralization of battlespace decisionmaking, in ways that will allow individuals to make calls on their own in environments that may remain more contested than in the past.
On January 25, the Foreign Policy program at Brookings will host a discussion on the future of warfare and multi-domain battlespaces. General James M. Holmes of the U.S. Air Force, and commander of Air Combat Command, with give opening remarks. Brookings Senior Fellow Michael O’Hanlon will then join General Holmes for a discussion, adding his own perspective.
Following their conversation, General Holmes and O’Hanlon will take audience questions.
