In one corner the U.S. Air Force flies the most advanced aircraft in the world, yet in the other corner, Airmen use clunky spreadsheets and paper documents to analyze operations and mission plan.
  • AFIT students inform Pentagon energy initiative as part of new course

    As part of a newly offered course at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), a small group of students determined energy-optimized flying conditions for Air Force fighter relocation missions, which are also known as coronets. Their work is helping to inform a Pentagon-led initiative that seeks to increase the efficiency and combat capability of aircraft operations.
  • Air Force Seeks Industry Insight on Energy-as-a-Service Concept

    The U.S. Air Force, in conjunction with the Defense Logistics Agency-Energy (DLA Energy), is soliciting industry feedback via a Request for Information (RFI), solicitation number SP0600-19-R-0803, on a different way to manage and procure energy at an installation. This new approach, referred to as Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS), seeks a single industry provider to comprehensively and more cost-effectively deliver reliable, resilient and efficient energy to mission owners at an Air Force installation.
