YOI LogoThe Air Force Materiel Command Innovation Campaign highlights the vast innovation efforts across the command. From research and development, to testing, and deployment and sustainment of our warfighting platforms and people, the work of AFMC impacts the Air Force across all mission sets. We're working hard to do our jobs faster and smarter, leveraging an innovative mindset for the future of warfighting.

Senior Leader Perspectives

The world is changing at a pace and scale – and our adversaries are competing in ways – that we haven’t seen before. We have to change. We need Airmen to help move our Air Force forward, because the status quo just doesn’t suffice in today’s world.

--Air Force Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Stephen W. Wilson

How can we do less, do it better, do it faster, and be more efficient, be more lethal, and, ultimately, create a more ready and lethal joint fighting force? The answer is innovation.

 --Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright

This is the 2019 Year of Innovation, led by innovative Airmen, trusted and empowered, creating agile, cost-effective war-winning capabilities for our Nation.
