Innovating compressor blade inspection

PENTAGON, Va. - Blade defects decrease engine efficiency and power, while increasing fuel burn (specific fuel consumption) and exhaust gas temperature (EGT) - resulting in higher maintenance costs, and decreased aircraft availability.  Additionally, defective compressor blades can pose a safety threat if not replaced in a timely manner. While researching areas for increased aircraft optimization, Air Force Operational Energy found that cost-effective and reliable blade inspection ensures engines are performing optimally, and is paramount to maintaining aircraft readiness.

Learning from the Air Force Test Center

Energy analysts interview Airmen at Dover AFB

EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. - Air Force Operational Energy visited the Air Force Test Center and met with Airmen from the 418th Flight Test Squadron and 412th Flight Test Wing to discuss ways to improve operational efficiency and learn about some of the projects they are working on.

Meeting with Airmen and senior leaders from around the Air Force helps us collaborate and find innovative solutions to our challenges.

Data enables the Air Force to 'fuel more fight'

PENTAGON, Va. - Data collection and analysis have been critical to maintaining the effectiveness and lethality of the Air Force for decades, and are more important than ever in the age of big data, machine learning, and the complex challenges of the 21st century. For Air Force Operational Energy, championing data initiatives is the cornerstone of their vision: to create an energy optimized Air Force that maximizes combat capability for the warfighter.
