AEF Center Offers New Web Format

AEF Center Offers New Web Format

By Lt. Col. Bryan A. Holt, Aerospace Expeditionary Force Center.

Langley Air Force Base, Virginia -- May 14, 2001 (AFPN) -- The Air Force's Web-based deployment tool, EAF Online, has been redesigned to give airmen more help with Air Expeditionary Force issues.

The Aerospace Expeditionary Force Center here redesigned the Web site to give users more information, enhanced access and the convenience of a single source for all AEF deployment information. The center is the agency for implementing the Air Force's EAF concept.

"This is a major milestone to provide better service to those deploying," said Lt. Col. Marie Barboza, the AEF Center's project officer for EAF Online.

The new format combines features of the previous AEFC site into a Web "portal" which provides access to various databases and can be customized for each user. The site offers an array of information including deployment checklists, the AEF Commanders' Playbook, lessons learned, and the newest feature, the Commanders' Toolkit.

The major attraction for deployers is the position descriptions with information on the duties, requirements and conditions of specific deployed positions. Users get the information by first registering at the site, which establishes their profile. Future logins will provide information tailored to the user's career field. The deployment checklist includes training, medical status and other qualifications required for deployment, as well as links to references. Commanders can track training requirements of their people.

The Commander's Toolkit upgrade to EAF Online allows commanders to track the deployment status of their unit and people. Future enhancements will include a training module to track skill level training and a module to track operations tempo. All modules are updated by pulling data from existing Air Force data sources, such as the Personnel Data System.

"EAF Online is also very beneficial to Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard members," Barboza said. The position descriptions and the Commanders' Toolkits include information for active, Guard and Reserve personnel.

The restricted Web site can be accessed via military and government computers at https://aefcenter.acc.af.mil/. The AEFC has also added a new public Web site accessible from any computer. It can be accessed through EAF Online or directly at http://aefc.langley.af.mil.

Updated daily, the unclassified site allows users to link to EAF/AEF activities, theater information and other key issues.

"As the AEF construct matures, the unclassified Web site provides critical information on how the Air Force conducts business in the 21st century to the general public, family members and news media representatives," Barboza said . "This also allows Air Force people to get certain AEF information from their home computers.

The sites offer "one-stop shopping" for those eligible to deploy and those who want more information about the EAF concept and AEF process. Individuals can also provide feedback through EAF Online.

"It is critical that everyone identified for an AEF should go to EAF Online to obtain the latest information they need for their deployment," Barboza said.
