The Air Force needs to cut the number of applications it has on its network.
The Army and Air Force are using a shared network security infrastructure at Joint Base San Antonio as of Sept. 14. It's a major step toward the Defense Department's goal of moving base-level cybersecurity operations to a more defensible, centrally-managed architecture.
The Air Force has a list of priorities for fiscal year 2015. They include eliminating 21 general officer billets, addressing the problems with an aging fleet of aircraft and dealing with a budget designed to shrink the force. Still, Secretary Deborah Lee James says the service is in good shape. As the Air Force celebrates its 67th birthday, James gave Tom Temin a status report on the Federal Drive.
After eight months on the job, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James tells Federal Drive with Tom Temin that even though the service is in good shape, it still faces uncertainty around its budget, overseas operations and readiness.
The Air Force can't afford the programs it thinks it will need over the next decade. The service's top officer says it's time to reexamine priorities, with a realistic view of the funding it will get from Congress.
The Air Force plans to slash its ranks to fewer than 328,000 by the end of the year. Lt. Gen. James Jackson, chief of the Air Force Reserves, says the cutbacks are actually a good opportunity to keep many of its active duty Airmen in blue. Here's an example of how it can work. Col. Russell Muncy is commander of the 452nd Air Mobility Wing at March Air Force Reserve Base in California. His unit has received the Air Force Association Reserve Unit award. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain why his unit has been recognized. View photos and listen to interviews from the event.
You can't teach an old dog new tricks. But you can take an old plane and modernize its systems and software to make it efficient for duty. At Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma they're breathing new life into older equipment. Lt. Gen. Bruce Litchfield is commander of the Air Force Sustainment Center at Tinker. He spoke with Tom Temin at the Air Force Association's Air and Space Conference and gave the Federal Drive an update on the ongoing efforts to modernize the fleet and the software behind it all. View photos and listen to interviews from the event.
If the last 13 years of foreign wars have shown anything, it's the importance of reserve forces. Brig. Gen. John Flournoy is commander of the 4th Air Force within the Air Force Reserve Command. He's based out of March Air Reserve Base, California. He joined Federal Drive host Tom Temin at the Air Force Association conference and expo at National Harbor.
Behind many of today's soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines are spouses and children. That's also the case for the Air National Guard. The Air Force provides its guardsmen with a variety of programs to ensure the quality of family life. Maj. Kelly Barton, Chief of Airman and Family Services for the Air National Guard , joined Federal Drive host Tom Temin at the Air Force Association conference to discuss the program.
If you like things that fly fast and zoom through space, the annual Air Force Association conference and exposition is the place to be. It's also the place to catch the technology and policy trends for the Air Force. Retired Gen. Craig McKinley is president of the Air Force Association. He joined Federal Drive host Tom Temin talk about this year's conference.
