(Tribune News Service) — What is being called a new approach to warfighting will be the focus of an Air Force event in Dayton next week.
The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s Chief Architect Integration Office is hosting an Advanced Battle Management Systems Industry Day Jan. 29.
The event will examine new technologies the Air Force and other branches are testing that could unify disparate sources of information from different platforms into a more complete picture of what’s happening on the battlefield.
The event will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at Sinclair Community College Building 12, 444 W. 3rd St., Dayton, room 113.
Last month in Florida, the Air Force, the Navy and the Army tested what is being called a “a novel approach to warfighting, communicating and decision-making.”
“Peer competitors are rapidly advancing their capabilities, seeking to hold our homeland at risk,” Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command, recently said. “Working across all of the services and with industry toward solutions to complex problems ensures we meet defense challenges as well as maintain our strategic advantage in an increasingly competitive global environment.”
