Abstract : This volume summarizes the deliberations and conclusions of the 2000 Air Force Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) Summer Study, "Air Force Command and Control: The Path Ahead." In this study, the Board was asked to assess the command and control system and the supporting communication and information systems; to consider technical and process improvements and to make recommendations on what should be done to "have the Air Force linked by 2005"; and to build toward the Air Force's long-term command and control goals. There are three volumes to the report. This volume, Volume 1, presents a brief summary of the findings and the major recommendations. Volume 2 presents the panel reports, including detailed findings and recommendations. Volume 3 includes the majority of the appendices, a few being included in Volumes 1 and 2.
