The Digital Campaign is an AFMC-led, coordinated effort with the goal to create an integrated digital ecosystem that provides enterprise access to the data individuals need to develop, test, field and maintain complex weapon systems. The goal is to leverage modern digital capabilities to decrease the time it takes to move a weapon system from a concept into the hands of a warfighter, while providing the ability to adapt capabilities at speed to meet the requirements of today’s dynamic warfighting domain. This illustration represents a digital twin--a virtual representation of an instance of a physical object that shares data with its physical twin throughout the system lifecycle.

As states across the U.S. begin to slowly reopen their economies, our Air Force Materiel Command leaders have similarly taken steps as our Airmen and Civilian Airmen begin to return to full mission capacity following major disruptions caused by COVID-19. Through careful planning coupled with implementation of new cleaning and safety measures, the command is taking every precaution to lower the risk to exposure as individuals return to the workplace. “Flexibility will be key. Setbacks requiring us to adjust the plan are possible. I can assure you we are using every tool we have to lower the risk to our people and enable us to perform our mission,” said Gen. Arnold W. Bunch, Jr., AFMC Commander. (U.S. Air Force video by Ryan Law)
