Abstract : This paper examines the problems a joint force commander (JFC) faces when employing USAF OCI capabilities in his campaign plan. The intention is to address concerns as to how synchronized, interdependent events impact OCI operations conducted in a rapidly changing and highly compartmentalized environment. The focus is upon the command and control (C2) relationships and operational considerations such as formally established and documented procedures, target development, integration, synchronization and execution with the required intelligence and communications support. Execution is expected to occur under Title 10 authorities and from any point of access to the target with the intended effects occurring within the JFC's area of operations as an integrated and synchronized part of his campaign plan.
