  • USDA net system designed to reduce aviation bird strikes in AOR

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture works with safety teams around the Air Force to limit the presence of birds on and around airfields to protect aircraft from bird strikes, an issue that costs the Air Force millions of dollars every year in damages. Here, at the busiest aerial port in the U.S. Air Forces Central Command, the USDA team has taken a system for catching birds used at a few stateside installations in the Air Force and created one fitted for use in the desert. This demonstrates the potential that our Airmen from all components of the Total Force—civilian, Guard or Reserve, or active duty—have to make a difference through their ingenuity and creativity.

  • Weekend-duty: Total Force Integration more than a buzz phrase at Offutt

    Innovation, which increases readiness, reduces costs, returns time back to Airmen and increases lethality, doesn’t have to involve software upgrades, new weapon systems or a rewrite of a regulation. Members of Team Offutt recently proved this when, for the first time, a RC-135V/W Rivet Joint flew a weekend training sortie with a flight and mission crew made up almost exclusively of Airmen from the reserve components Aug. 5, 2018, at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska.

This total force integration training with the 23d and 476th MXS allowed Airmen to work together to identify more ways to efficiently and safely conduct their mission. The munitions flight ensures A-10C Thunderbolt IIs are armed with 30mm rounds to make sure they are able to continue their mission while at home station and deployed.

  • Tyndall’s Total Force: 44th Maintenance Squadron keeps F-22 Raptors flying

    Whether they’re on active or reserve orders, the Airmen of the 44th Maintenance Squadron keep Tyndall’s F-22 Raptors mission ready through the process of Total Force Integration.
