Summit Designers Update Armament Roadmap

Summit Designers Update Armament Roadmap

By Capt. Christine Wollard, Air Armament Center Public Affairs

Eglin Air Force Base, Florida -- March 9, 2001 (AFPN) -- The annual Air Armament Summit, set to begin here March 14, provides a review of the current state of air armament and serves as a platform for envisioning future needs of the warfighter.

"The Air Armament Summit is a unique forum held annually which brings together senior leaders from government, industry and academia to debate the future of air armaments," said Maj. Gen. Michael C. Kostelnik, Air Armament Center commander.

This year's summit will include international participation for the first time.

"It is important to include our friends and allies in the summit process because we no longer fight wars as a singular entity," said Lt. Col. Chuck Morant, AAC plans and programs international office director. "We fight as coalitions. Interoperable weapons systems leverage our resources and enhance coalition warfighting by producing force multipliers.

The summit begins the process, and takes a look to air armament that is jointly developed and produced, which supports the coalition warfighter, he said.

Kostelnik conceived the idea to hold a summit each year shortly after all Air Force munitions programs were placed under his command Oct. 1, 1998. He determined that a long-range strategic plan for air armaments was needed and took actions that led to the first armament summit in spring 1999. The event resulted in the creation of a 25-year air armament roadmap that is now updated annually through the summit process.

Speakers scheduled to address participants include Gen. Michael E. Ryan, Air Force chief of staff; Gen. Lester L. Lyles, Air Force Materiel Command commander; Gen. Gregory Martin, U.S. Air Forces in Europe commander; Gen. John P. Jumper, Air Combat Command commander, and Willard H. Mitchell, deputy undersecretary of the Air Force for international affairs.

At the summit's banquet, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will welcome dinner guests, and Gen. Richard B. Myers, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is scheduled to deliver the keynote address.
