Officials say the working group, a follow-up from a meeting in 2007, was designed to establish which ISR initiatives work best from the Army and from the Air Force and combine them to strengthen joint ISR capabilities on the ground and by air, the Air Force reported.

"The focus of this working group was to improve on integrating interservice training with a goal of enhanced mutual understanding of service ISR operations and training needs, ultimately improving combat effectiveness," Cheri Tone, an Air Combat Command Directorate of Intelligence pre-deployment training analyst, said in a statement.

"By working together with the Army in these working groups, we can come up with opportunities to improve our relationship and communication, creating an unstoppable joint ISR force in theater."
