Description: The Air Force Journal of Logistics is the professional logistics publication of the Air Force. We provide an open forum for presenting research, innovative thinking, and ideas and issues of concern to the Air Force and civilian logistics communities. It is distributed worldwide and reaches all segments of the Air Force and nearly all levels of the Department of Defense and US government. You'll also find the Journal is read by foreign military forces in 26 countries, people in industry, and students at universities with undergraduate and graduate programs in logistics.

Description: In 1996, shortly after Operation Desert Strike, concern about the long-term requirements of enforcing the no-fly zones, including covering the carrier gap, led to the initial concept of an air and space expeditionary force (AEF). At that time, the Deputy Chief of Staff (DCS), Operations, Lieutenant General John P. Jumper, realized that transforming the Air Force to a more expeditionary footing was going to require comprehensive analytic study. The unique capabilities of both RAND Project Air Force and the Air Force Logistics Management Agency (AFLMA) were harnessed to take on this task. From the outset and continuing through today, our work has been jointly sponsored by the DCS, Operations and DCS, Installations and Logistics. Many of you reading this may not remember the Air Force before it became expeditionary. Some of the ideas in the articles have been accepted and ingrained into the Air Force. Concepts such as forward support location and the new, smaller centralized intermediate repair facilities (CIRF) were foreign to the Air Force just a few years ago and are today an accepted, integral part of the ACS system. Our teams have played a key role in the design and execution of Title X wargames. New ideas and concepts can be furthered in the games without impacting operational organizations. Our participation in the games as designers, assessors, or subject-matter experts has benefited us, the participants, and the directors. Aside from the games, we also affected future operations in numerous ways. The DCS, Installations and Logistics, after recognizing serious deficiencies with combat support command and control (CSC2), sponsored an effort to develop a CSC2 operational architecture, which is being implemented throughout the Air Force today. Our work on CIRFs outside the continental United States (CONUS) led to the transformational idea of CONUS CIRFs, which is under study by the Air Force.
