(U) Talon VISION is one of eight functional areas under the Air Force TENCAP Program. Talon VISION's mission is to increase National systems responsiveness to the warfighters' operational requirements by ensuring combat commanders' requirements are a major consideration throughout the design, operational testing and development of new National systems. Specific FY98 projects under Talon VISION include the Influencing National Systems Integrated Product Team (INS IPT), Integrated Overhead SIGINT Architecture II (IOSA 2) and development of a five-year Talon VISION Roadmap.
(U) Talon VISION is responsible for coordination of the INS IPT, a forum of Air Force MAJCOMs and other agencies directly involved in the collection, processing, dissemination and use of National data. The INS IPT directs focus and actions by prioritizing opportunities to influence National systems and by reviewing and approving documents produced by Talon VISION in support of the IPT.
(U) In Mar 98, HQ AF/XOIR requested Talon VISION write an Intelligence Needs Document to support the IOSA 2 Joint Requirements Oversight Council. This document is initially to detail all Air Force requirements for overhead SIGINT collection. The document will eventually cover Air Force requirements for all "INTs." The IOSA 2 document is being prepared for MAJCOM coordination in Jul 98. Following MAJCOM coordination, the document will be forwarded to HQ AF/XOIR for their use during the IOSA 2 Joint Requirements Oversight Council in the fall of 98.
(U) Talon VISION has worked with SWC leadership and support contractors to develop a new five-year roadmap. This plan incorporates changes in the overall AF TENCAP focus, expanding to civil and commercial space systems in addition to "National" systems. The roadmap details future plans and potential areas for normalization of the influencing national systems mission into other Air Force processes. Talon VISION is implementing the five-year plan beginning in FY99.
