Landon and Richard will discuss “AFMC Wargaming in the 21st Century – Informing Future Force Development and Design.”

Abstract: The dynamic demands of the 21st Century environment, combined with the return of Great Power Competition, require agility of thought on the part of strategic planners vis--vis the development of future Air and Space Forces. Wargaming informs future force development and design, enabling strategic planners to develop the requisite capabilities necessary for worldwide American military power projection across the spectrum of competition and conflict.

Mr. Bailey serves as the wargaming technical expert to the Director, Strategic Plans, Programs, Requirements and Analyses and leads a total force team of eleven personnel. Mr. Bailey is personally responsible for the execution of AFMC’s Long Duration Logistics Wargame, Science and Technology Wargame and the Global Mobility/Combat Support Wargame.

Mr. Richard J. Hughes serves as the Chief of Wargaming and Deliberate Plans in the Headquarters, Air Force Materiel Command’s Directorate of Plans, Programs, Requirements, and Analyses. He leads a team of military and civilian professionals in the development of plans supporting the AFMC Commander’s role of providing campaign support capabilities to component Major Commands, and Combatant Commands alike, supporting the Air Force, Space Force, and Joint Force.
