Exploring Greater Collaboration

Officials with Air Force Space Command and the Defense Information Systems Agency met at Peterson AFB, Colo., to discuss each organization’s activities and explore areas of increased cooperation that could yield greater operational efficiencies and enhance mission assurance. “Today’s event showed both DISA and [AFSPC headquarters] bring complementary perspectives to the cyber domain, and highlighted many ventures in which we can collaborate to support the joint fight,” said Robert Rego, AFSPC chief of space and cyberspace operational integration, of the April 21 meeting. Additional topics included discussion of the military satellite communications architecture, global information grid protection, Internet Protocol convergence, real-time service, and information technology for improved operational effectiveness.
