USAF Revamps Intel Structure

The Air Force plans to place even more emphasis on its intelligence operations, placing functional management responsibility over intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance assets with its newly created three-star intel guru. Last year the service designated a new position, that of deputy chief of staff for intelligence, currently filled by Lt. Gen. David Deptula; this year, it will make that position the “single focal point” for all Air Force ISR capabilities, writes Gen. Michael Moseley in a new Chief of Staff “Vector.”
