The Vision: “One Team…One Digital Lifecycle Enterprise”
The Why: The United States Air Force is the most capable and effective airpower in the world. However, potential adversaries are rapidly delivering new capabilities and are threatening, and in some cases surpassing, our military dominance. The increasing time it takes to field new capabilities is the greatest hindrance to maintaining dominance in the future.
The Campaign: The Air Force Materiel Command Digital Campaign is an AFMC coordinated effort to move the activities of our enterprise, government and industry, to modern digital capabilities and processes. The desired end state is a collaborative, integrated digital environment that guides, orchestrates, and delivers the means for each individual across the enterprise to access the data, functions and elements needed to do a his or her job in a purely digital manner. This includes all functions, from acquistion to sustainment and beyond, not just engineering.
The End Game: To deliver capabilities to our Air and Space Force at ever increasing speed and efficiency by designing, sustaining, and modernizing them in an integrated digital environment.
