TOP STORY >>Uniquely USAF: Global Battlespace

Battlespace can be defined as the environment, factors and conditions that must be understood to successfully apply combat power, protect the force, or complete the mission. In layman’s terms it is your area of influence and your operating environment.

Your battlespace may be “outside the wire” or in an office; you might be responsible for an entire squadron or just yourself. Regardless, each battlespace interlocks as part of the larger mission (aka, the big picture) and provides the backbone of our nation’s defense.

The battlespace of our Air Force is unique and our influence is, in a word, unrivaled. We conduct operations in the domains of air, space, and cyberspace.

And, we dominate these battlespaces by applying three age-old Air Force tenets; global vigilance, global reach, and global power.

Global vigilance is our ability to gather intelligence and monitor enemies in any battlespace…air, space, or cyberspace.
Global reach is our ability to span the world via airlift and in-flight refueling…the capability to enact national policy half a world away is truly unique.

Global power is the application of energy…hot steel on target…when required to bend the will of our enemy.
The Air Force’s ability to impact the battlespace on a global scale is awesome and inspiring.

The men and women of Little Rock AFB along with our community partners, retirees, and families deserve to be proud of our contributions.
