  • Here is the CSAF vision when it comes to AEF. What is an AEF? NEXT SLIDE>>>>>
  • The US Air Force changed the way it tasks resources. OPLANs call for entire units to deploy. OPLANS are not usually executed as designed. OPLANS do not effectively task all USAF capabilities. The new Expeditionary Air Force concept employs Aerospace Expeditionary Forces (AEF) Aerospace Expeditionary Wings (AEW) Lead Mobility Wings (LMW) and Enablers. AEFs, AEWs, LMWs, and Enablers are composed of Modular, scaleable Unit Type Codes (UTC). UTCs do not have to come from the same unit. UTCs are defined by their Mission Capability Statements Chief of Staff Air Force wanted some thing useful and right away NEXT SLIDE>>>>>
  • The AEF CONOPS is designed to be a force management and force presentation tool. In the past, units would be tasked based on availability. The biggest concern about that process was that the member or unit did not have predictability over when they were expected to deploy and how long they would be gone. The AEF methodology was developed to better manage the forces by building a rotational schedule that encompassed the total Air Force. Will the AEF methodology reduce the number of TDYs or deployments? Not necessarily, nor was it designed to. Two of the principle characteristics of the AEF are the presentation of forces to the combatant commander and management of the personnel force by brining predictability and stability to our airmen during steady state. Force management, quantifying cost of engagement and integrating the guard, reserve and active duty as a Total Force are additional benefits of the AEF. Prior to the implementation of the AEF, the Air Force provided capability based on a combatant commander ’s requirement. The Air Force would continue to provide the requested capability until that capability was spread so thin that the unit's) providing it couldn’t provide more. To the unit, this process would push it to the point of “broken”; however, the perception to others outside the Air Force was that we had enough capability to provide for any contingency. This process of “providing on demand” made it virtually impossible for the Air Force to quantify its cost of engagement , or determine shortages to meet combatant commander requirements such as not having enough Security Forces or Global Hawks. Through the AEF methodology, we now have an objective basis to program out force structure. The AEF consolidates and evenly schedules Air Force capabilities to better manage its use on a global scale. A key point to be made is that the AEF provides Air Force capability to meet combatant commander requirements while simultaneously reconstituting the rest of the force so that the capability can be provided on a sustained basis. Furthermore, The AEF provided forces to combatant commanders to meet the National Military Strategy of 1, 4, 2, 1. How Does this work with ART? NEXT SLIDE>>>>>
  • AEF Center was directed to develop a method to measure Total Force readiness. Already had SORTS, but that address a whole Wing, needed something that was not at Wing level but UTC level. -- Needed to be Simple and something that could be used right away. Transition: How do we take these UTC and create building blocks for AEF NEXT SLIDE>>>>>
  • ART is not graded by C levels It is graded by the “stop-light”method
  • ART DATABASE COMPOSITION ART contains only the “ D ” coded UTC ’ s that are available for deployment. You can determine the level of availability by the first number of the ULN: 1 = DWS (Available for War or Steady State) 3 = DXS (Available for Steady State) 5 = DWX (Available for War) 7 = DXX (If willing to “ Break the Base ” ) The UTC below is a DWX since the ULN begins with a “ 5 ” ULN UTC 5 749M 4F9X9 Another type of UTC is the A-UTC (A coded/Associate). Since A-UTCs do not have a MISCAP they are not currently reported in ART . However, the next ART program release will include A-UTC visibility. We are looking into automatically accessing them based on if they are filled, all personnel are available for duty; and no nonavailable DAV codes.   Transition – Now what if you discover an UTC posturing error, who do you contact to get it corrected?
  • Unit Line Number (ULN) is a unique UTC identifier ULNs are keyed temporarily to an AEF pair ULN changes, the UTC loses all previous assessment data and becomes “Not Reported” What about the Assessment Process? Next Slide……..
  • SORTS vs ART SORTS is a unit centric report based on major war commitment. Using DOC statements and reports by UIC Unit Identification Codes. ART Focuses on reporting the modular scalable capability-based UTC ’s designed to meet the needs of the 21 st Century Force identify all their specific REPORTING concerns and we will address them to the appropriate offices, especially ART.

  • 1. SORTS & ART S TATUS O F R ESOURCES AND T RAINING S YSTEM A EF UTC R eporting T ool
  • 2. WHAT IS SORTS? SORTS is the central registry of units required to report or to be reported within the World Wide Military Command and Control System.
  • 3. All combat, combat support, and Service-designated combat support units of the operating forces of each Service (including Active, National Guard, and Reserve units) tasked in either the SIOP, and OPLAN/CONPLAN, or Service war planning document are designated measure units and will report the status of resources and training.
  • 4. WHY HAVE SORTS? It provides the National Command Authority, Joint Chiefs of Staffs, and unified and specific commands with authoritative identify, location, and resource information for crisis actions. It also lets Services monitor unit resources and training in peacetime.
  • 5. CATEGORY LEVELS
    • C-1 (can undertake full wartime tasking)
    • C-2 (can undertake bulk of wartime tasking)
    • C-3 (can undertake major portions )
    • C-4 (requires additional resources and/or tng)
    • C-5 (is undergoing mission change)

  • 9.
    • “ In our Air Force, every Airman is expeditionary , every Airman will know his/her place in the AEF system, and every Airman will be prepared to support the Combatant Commander, whether deployed, in CONUS via reach back, or employed at home station. If you are wearing the uniform of the United States Air Force, you are a part of the AEF.”
    • Question asked by Senior AF Leadership:
      • 1- Where are we on getting 100% of the AF into the AEF rotational gene pool?
      • 2- If we ’re not at 100% this morning... I want to know (by MAJCOM, by AFSC) where the shortfalls are and what are our specific plans to move into 100% inclusion…

  • 10. ART Reporting
    • Unit commander assessments reported in ART present the status of each UTC in the AEF library.
    • They provide higher levels of command the necessary information to make force and resources allocation decisions to effectively support theater commanders
  • 11. STATEMENT OF NEED
    • Develop a system that:
      • Provides Headquarters AF, AF Component Commanders, MAJCOM's, and the AEF Center (AEFC) readiness information to employ, manage, and sustain Expeditionary Air Force operations
      • Provides units a mechanism to report a Unit Type Code's (UTC) ability to fulfill its Mission Capability Statement (MISCAP) across the full spectrum of operations
        • Document any deficiencies
      • Provides data to aid resource allocation and tasking decisions during steady state, contingency, and crisis operations
  • 12. WHY ART WAS DEVELOPED
    • Air Force changed the way it plans and tasks resources
      • Before – OPLANs called for entire units to deploy
      • Now the norm is to take a portion of a unit (UTC ’s)
      • Reorganized/Future concept
        • Air and Space Expeditionary Forces (AEF), Lead Mobility Wings (LMW) and Enablers
    • CSAF needed to know the readiness of UTCs
      • SORTS didn ’t capture the data—looked at the entire unit
        • Approximately 2200 units in the Air Force don ’t report in SORTS—PA example.
      • Attempted to modify SORTS, but it could not adapt to provide the readiness of the modular, scaleable UTCs
  • 13. WHY ART WAS DEVELOPED CONTINUED
    • CSAF directed the AEF Center to develop a method to measure AEF readiness at the UTC level
    • AEF Center ’s answer is ART
      • Simple, secure web based tool
      • ART is an Air Force tool managed by the AEF Center Readiness Branch
  • 14. 2 Major Theater Wars Previous OPLAN View Whole units part of MTW O-Plans Whole units report status in SORTS Why ART?
  • 15. AEF Key Principles
    • Predictability and stability during steady state and a planned and orderly transition in crisis state
    • Rotation period is optimal for training, retention, quality of life and ARC support
    • 10 equally capable AEFs
        • ALWAYS READY … no tiered readiness
      • Accomplishes 1-4-2-1 National Military Strategy
        • 1 - Homeland defense priority 1
        • 4 - Forward presence in 4 areas of world
        • 2 - Fight 2 contingencies simultaneously
        • 1 - Win decisively in 1 , then transition to the 2nd
  • 16.
    • CSAF directed the AEF Center to develop a method to measure Total Force readiness
      • It needed to address readiness at the UTC level
      • It needed to be simple
      • CSAF wanted something useful right away
    A Mandate to Measure Readiness Why ART? now!
  • 17. ASSESS THE UTC “ STOPLIGHT” CRITERIA
    • The assessment criteria is simple, (KISS)
      • One subjective point: is the UTC Yellow or Red
    • Commanders are not constrained by the unit SORTS "C" rating when assessing the health of the UTC
    • A single assessment for the entire UTC
      • Green — everything (GO)
      • Yellow — Deficiency, but can still perform its mission (CAUTION)
      • Red — Has a deficiency and cannot perform its mission (NO GO)
  • 18. “ STOPLIGHT” ASSESSMENT PROCESS Yes No Does UTC have Everything (Personnel, Training, Equip Cond. Equip Supply? Can UTC Accomplish its Mission? Status – Green Action Complete No Status – Red Enter Remarks and GWD Action = Fix it Yes Status – Yellow Enter Remarks and GWD Action = Fix it
  • 19.
    • UTC Tracking:
      • Currently ART contains only “D” Standard UTCs (P-Code)
        • AEF Libraries the first ULN character identifies UTC coding
          • 1 = DWS (Available for War or Steady State)
          • 3 = DXS (Available for Steady State)
          • 5 = DWX (Available for War)
          • 7 = DXX (If willing to “Break the Base”)
    • For example: UTC 4F9X9 is coded as DWX . In the AEF libraries the ULN for UTC 4F9X9 is 5 749M
      • The interpretation of this ULN would be:
        • 5 = DWX
        • 7 = the AEF pair (AEF 7)
        • 4 denotes the Functional Area
        • 9 and M are free-flowing place keepers (Pair specific…)
    • A-UTCs (A-coded/Associate) not currently reported in ART
    ART Database
  • 20.
    • A Unit Line Number (ULN) is a unique UTC identifier
      • Multiples of the same UTC will have different ULNs
    • ULNs are keyed temporarily to an AEF pair
      • If, for any reason, a UTC shifts to a different AEF pair, the ULN will change
      • When a ULN changes, or the MEFPAK changes “something” the UTC loses all previous assessment data and becomes “Not Reported”
      • Needs to be re-assessed as soon as possible…
