What the Joint
world sees
AF ISR
Enterprise
Joint
Operations

The Joint world often only notices the ~1200 deployed ISR
Airmen … However, more than 5,000 ISR Airman (nearly 45%
of AF ISR Airman) are executing ISR operations for the
COCOMs every day …
GIISR: An ISR enterprise where the source is transparent,
analysis predictive, and distribution immediate
