Nellis Air Force Base Airmen are utilizing the modern software application WIDOW, or Web-based Information Dominant Warfare, to digitize the tactical-level mission planning process.

The 100% government-owned code that is designated as the official United States Air Force Mission Planning Cell Tool enables real-time and distributed contribution, coordination, and visualization of planning details so Airmen, Guardians, and Joint partners can focus on tactics and lethality.

Mission commanders, mission planning cell chiefs, and their teams need only an internet connection and a browser to use WIDOW, which offers increased speed, organization, and accuracy of planning tasks.
