Snapshot of Squadron Leader Michael Burley interview:

About you, what role does the 92 Squadron play in the Royal Air Force, and what perspective do you aim bring to the conference?

92 Sqn support current and future operations by providing: timely, precise and impartial tactical advice for commanders and operators; expert support to the development and delivery of relevant and demanding training; and specialist advice to support future capability development planning.

What are the primary obstacles for the RAF in conducting effective mission planning, and how are you looking to overcome these?

Air and Space (and Cyber) C2 elements are not coherently configured and often not interoperable. Nomenclature, functions of each organisation, and CIS infrastructure are not set up to achieve even modest multi-domain integration, before even considering security classification barriers. In 2019, the RAF launched the 11 Group Transformation plan which aims to address each of these issues in turn.
