The Air Force has adopted the mantra of CSAF Gen. C.Q. Brown, Jr. to “Accelerate Change or Lose”, and the operational concept of Agile Combat Employment (ACE), which demands innovative approaches such as agile, tailored force packages, dispersed deployments, and multi-capable Airmen to respond quickly to threats.

This panel discussion addresses the challenges of this new CONOPS and solutions to realize its potential, including commonality, interoperability, and streamlined logistics to provide resilience and ensure warfighter readiness and effectiveness.

Of note is a discussion led by Marvin Test Solutions’ CEO, Major General Stephen T. Sargeant, USAF (Ret.) summarizing years of Armament Maintainers’ “desirements” and how they have evolved to requirements under ACE. Focusing on those “desirements”, Marvin Test Solutions has been working for a decade to design and develop test equipment to meet the requirements needed to enable Multi-capable Airmen — innovative armament test solutions that are ready to deploy today.
