WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, OH – A new weapons system collaboration program aims to synergize communication between program offices and operational wings, ensuring Warfighters have the right technology to meet current and future Warfighting needs.

Gen. Arnold W. Bunch, Jr., Air Force Materiel Command Commander and Gen. Mike Holmes, Air Combat Command Commander, signed a memorandum of agreement establishing the Lead Wing Collaboration Program during the Technology and Acquisition Sustainment Review Conference on January 29 at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA.

The agreement creates a new culture paradigm for the acquisition and operational communities, focusing on improved communication and continuous collaboration. It also establishes a framework for bilateral immersions of Airmen to create better understanding of the maintenance and operational requirements of a weapons system throughout its life cycle.
