Any significant military operation in the future is likely to require close cooperation among allies.
In the intelligence world, this means that intelligence will in the future increasingly support not just joint but combined operations.
As the operational picture in the European theatre continues to evolve, intelligence support to operating forces from the JAC will continue to evolve along with it - from emphasis on single service requirements through joint and combined operations to coalition support.

 Merrill's Marauders: Combined Operations in Northern Burma in 1944
The first operation involving the 5307th had begun on the morning of 24 February with the front line positioned approximately fifteen kilometers north of Maingkwan, the former administrative center of the Hukawng Valley and the largest town in northern Burma (see map 3).
The key phrase here is "equitable in terms of burden and risk sharing," for in combined operations, the surest way to create discord is to create the impression that the units of one nation are being favored in some way over the units of another.
Their participation in operations was necessary to encourage the units of other nations to stay in the struggle and to fight hard.

 Davis-Monthan getting combined air operations center
In part; the idea behind a CAOC (Combined Air Operations Center) is to have a permaent, standing control node, focused on a particular geographic area, allowing us to transition to contingency operations much more quickly.
The big deal is not shipping the Operators to the AOR, because good commercial comms and bandwidth are available to remotely perform many management functions stateside; thus limiting exposure to danger and TDY's to the AOR for the "Operators".
What used to happen is the whole AOC would take over a facility/hangar and run the Air War from somewhere near or in the AOR, because military comm was extremely limited between all the services Intel, Voice, networks, video all had to fit a T1 or multiple T1's on a military sattelite.

systems in neighboring countries, and given a program of combined operations for air interdiction and narcotrafficking, the achievement of lasting regional effects may indeed be possible.
However, as the concept of the center develops beyond the immediate concern of narcotics trafficking and security operations, possible ancillary uses include the integration of future orbiting or airborne environmental sensors in Brazil, cartographic uses for sensors on Embraer aircraft, and border refinement and mapping.
As a confidence-building measure and regional-security cooperation effort, establishing such a center promises to be a win-win situation that advances the interests of both Brazil and the United States and strengthens hemispheric security.
