Abstract:

Many believe that the Department of Defense (DoD) -- including the Air Force -- must transform itself to ensure future U.S. military dominance. The Air Force has a transformation plan that includes advanced technologies, concept development, and organizational innovation. Issues for Congress include the efficacy of this plan, its feasibility, and the attendant costs. This report will be updated as events dictate.
