  • 82nd TRW faculty development tests avatar-based counseling platform

    The 82nd Training Wing Faculty Development Flight is jumping on board the technology train to teach new technical training instructors an old technique in a tried-and-true, yet innovative way – simulation. Basic Instructor Course students are provided an overview of the technology they are about to experience during the roughly 10-minute counseling simulation scenario, which can range in topics from suicide and depression to purposefully failing and mental aptitude.
  • Maintainers Maintain Mission Readiness

    Fighter jets and heavies can rule the skies, but they need to get there first. It takes strict attention to detail from aircraft maintainers to service aircraft in order to launch them to the battlefield.
  • 100th AMXS, 100th MXS test innovative in-ear headset

    An innovative in-ear headset is being tested by the 100th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron and 100th Maintenance Squadron at RAF Mildenhall, England. The device, which uses the bones in the user’s ear to transmit sound waves, provides both communication and hearing preservation capabilities to Airmen working in noisy environments.
  • Fix these broken wings – part fabrication saves Air Force time, money

  • Bringing defense planning into the 21st century through modern software

    For much of the defense community, the ease and functionality of modern technology is not translated to military planning systems. While cumbersome acquisitions processes, funding issues, and security concerns are often valid causes, many Department of Defense processes (and any software associated with them) cannot compete with the technology many Americans use regularly. In one corner the U.S. Air Force flies the most advanced aircraft in the world, yet in the other corner, Airmen use clunky spreadsheets and paper documents to analyze operations and mission plan.
