27 September 2017: DPAAS Meeting Invitation

“Connecting the Dots - AFLCMC Capability Planning"

 We are very pleased to announce that Mr. Jon “Tom” Graves (GS-15, DAF), Technical Advisor for the Program Development and Integration Directorate (AFLCMC/XZ) will be our speaker at the 27 September 2017 (Wednesday) meeting of the Defense Planning and Analysis Society, 11:30-1:30 pm, 2800 Presidential Drive, Holiday Inn, Fairborn, Ohio. Mr. Graves will discuss “Connecting the Dots – AFLCMC Capability Planning”.


Abstract: This presentation will “connect the dots” between new Air Force capability development processes, described during Jeanne Fox’s “Is JCIDS Dead?” talk in April and the Strategic Development Planning & Experimentation (SDPE) workshop in May, and the restructured AFLCMC/XZ roles in those processes. Beginning with where the Air Force is going with capability development and a recap of why the SDPE office was stood up, this presentation will attempt to reflect what AFLCMC is doing to respond to those top level Air Force and AFMC changes and their impact on AFLCMC’s capability planning mission. Hopefully, we will be able to connect the dots between recognition of Air Force needs and solutions to satisfying those needs.

Mr. Graves provides expert technical advice on acquisition matters with major emphasis on integrated Capabilities and Development planning. Tom provides expert acquisition advisory support to the AFLCMC Commander and all PEO portfolios within AFLCMC, including serving as the Assistant to the Commander for Special Programs since 2005. He was appointed as the ASC/XR (now AFLCMC/XZ) Technical Advisor in 2003 and is currently serving as the Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA) System of Systems Capability Manager.
