Former Pacific Air Forces Commander Presents at Chapter's Virtual Luncheon

The chapter's June luncheon featured Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., USAF, then-commander, Pacific Air Forces, who spoke about short-term goals and how industry partners can bolster Defense Department efforts and overcome networking and information assurance challenges.

Gen. Brown talked at length about the need to move away from hardware solutions and focus more on creating a secure, redundant mesh network driven by software solutions that empower decision makers and connect the "right sensor to the right shooter." He also stressed the necessity of improving dialog between industry and warfighters.

Looking ahead, he recommended that his relief focus on developing relationships with regional leadership, as well as make efforts to more fully understand China's strategic operations. He also recognized the greatest challenges will be in establishing strong, fast connections that allow multilevel access to data regardless of distance, much like commercial information infrastructure operates today.
