MacB to Help USAF Determine Future of C2 Training

Under the Air Combat Command CAAS III contract, MacB was awarded a task order (as a subcontractor to DP Technologies Services) to study and recommend how the USAF will conduct USAF C2 training. “This study is the first step in developing a solution which will benefit Air Force C2 in the future,” said Lt. Gen. William Rew, Vice Commander of Air Combat Command. “It will eliminate current stovepipe training and provide better, fully-integrated C2 support for combatant commanders.”

General Rew directed officials at the U.S. Air Force Warfare Center at Nellis Air Force Base, NV to formally conduct a study addressing training gaps and standardization for air, space and cyberspace C2 warfighters and standup of a C2 campus. “Lack of standardization and integrated training has led to an inconsistent knowledge base for C2 warfighters,” said Maj. Gen. Stanley Kresge, USAFWC Commander. “Consolidating training in one location will leverage cross-functional expertise and provide a dedicated training venue standardized across the Air Force.”

MacB will produce a comprehensive report and presentation for senior Air Force leaders addressing future integration of air, space and cyberspace training. It will provide recommendations for C-NAF, AOC and AFFOR staff training requirements at all levels — initial and mission qualification, continuation, advanced and functional. The study also will address senior leader C2 training requirements. The study is expected to be completed by January, 2011.
