An effort to rebalance the Air Force’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) spending plans might be similar in its execution of the effort the military service used previously to construct a cohesive family of systems for long-range strike aircraft, reports Aviation Week.
The review of the Air Force’s ISR portfolio, which is spearheaded by the service's intelligence office, is currently underway and will be used to guide senior leaders on the fiscal 2013 budget, which goes to Congress in February.
“As the overall budget comes down, we will have to get a little bit more discriminating about how we set priorities for ISR development,” Air Force Secretary Michael Donley told the aerospace and defense news outlet.
