Project Announcement: Evaluation of Air Refueling Support to the U.S. Strategic Command's Nuclear Deterrence Mission (Project No. D2019-DISPA 1-0152.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in May 2019. Our objective is to determine whether the U.S. Air Force has mission capable aircraft and aircrew to meet U.S. Strategic Command's Operation Global Citadel air refueling requirements. Specifically, we will focus on the KC-13 5 aircraft nuclear mission readiness, associated aircrew nuclear mission readiness, and the required installation support needed to meet the OPORD requirements. We will consider suggestions from management on additional or revised objectives.
