Revolutionize Base Lethality

Kent White quoteGoal Leader: Kent White, AFIMSC Plans and Programs Division Chief

Goal Description: Using several key processes, this goal develops actionable steps to transform the “installation of today” to the “future blueprint” through effective resourcing in a constrained environment. This holistic approach empowers an installation’s ability to achieve mission success using existing capabilities, through innovation and resource-informed advocacy.

LOE 1 Goal 4 Objectives:

  • G4.A — Base survivability - Operationalize the Fight the Base flight plan by end of FY21 
  • G4.B — Optimize - Create framework for installation of the future blueprint w/2 focus areas by end of FY21
  • G4.C — Advocate - Identify, track, and advocate for I&MS shortfall priorities by theater - equip, building, people

What can you tell us about your objectives?
To increase lethality and readiness as defined by resilient and ready installations, revolutionize basing lethality will focus on three areas:

  • Base survivability: operationalize the Fight the Base flight plan by the end of fiscal year 2021;
  • Creation of a blueprint for installation of the future by end of fiscal year 2021; and
  • Establishment of a baseline to identify, track, and advocate for installation and mission support shortfall priorities by theater, including equipment, buildings and people.

Why is Revolutionizing Base Lethality important to AFIMSC? 
AFIMSC leads the charge for base lethality as we provide the civil engineering expertise, skill and innovation in airfield damage repair to quickly assess, repair and return the runway and base to operational status. AFIMSC also provides security forces and the equipment needed to protect aircraft and facilities for the fight and deterrence. In addition, AFIMSC provides the services to feed and care for our Airmen, which remains a critical piece of providing basing lethality the world over.

How does your goal support AFMC, Air Force and National Defense Priorities?
Building a more lethal force is one of three lines of effort central to the National Defense Strategy laid out in 2018. By providing basing lethality, each installation becomes a weapon system poised to meet today’s challenges, while maintaining the deterrence required to protect our national resources.

How are you measuring success?
Each objective is measured by a timeline to formulate, operationalize and field respective initiatives. This could take months and years to accomplish as each initiative is unique and supports the fight. Establishing a baseline for IM&S shortfall priorities will guide and reveal opportunities for improvement in advocacy of resources.
