3 Air and Space Expeditionary Force (AEF)
Force generation construct that allows the Air Force to prepare and present forces (capabilities) globally Meet Combatant Commander requirements Provide Airmen deployment predictability Maintain home station readiness MESSAGE: The AEF is the methodology that allows the Air Force to prepare and present forces to meet defense strategy requirements while reconstituting the rest of the force so that the capability can be provided on a sustained basis. TALKING POINTS: Explain how Air Expeditionary Forces deploy to meet Combatant Commander Requirements. In simple terms, it’s how the Air Force provides our forces to the combatant commanders. It’s designed to be predictable, transparent and equitable It allows home-station units to reconstitute the force so the capability can be provided on a sustained basis 5 March 2010 3

Airmen will not deploy for longer periods or more often than their capabilities are required For example, I may be assigned to a UTC that is in Band C, Block 2. My AEF Indicator will be C2 and I should expect to be vulnerable for deployment for 6 months, then not be deployed until the next time C2 rolls around. An increase in requirements may cause functional areas to reassess band alignments A decrease in requirements in a functional area may move to a band higher on the chart. Tempo Band A remains the AF AEF baseline 5 March 2010 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 Sig 1:5 ARC Mob-to-Dwell; 6-Month Vulnerability Period / 9-Month Mobilization M 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 E 1:1 AC Postured; 6-Month Vulnerability Period 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 High 1:4 ARC Mob-to-Dwell; 6-Month Vulnerability Period / 9-Month Mobilization N 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

6 Posturing and Coding UTCs
UTCs are made visible and available through posturing and coding Posturing = visibility; Coding = availability Posturing Coding 1:4 A / B DWS/AWS – Supports the full range of military operations DXS/AXS – Home station support, can normally deploy 1:3 C DPS/APS – CCDR in-place mission, can deploy with risk MESSAGE Posturing and coding are critical components of the AEF TALKING POINTS Posturing is the process of assigning a UTC to an AEF (i.e. making them visible) Coding then determines the UTC’s availability to deploy based on wartime / home station requirements (i.e. availability) Posturing and coding are done by MAJCOM FAMs in coordination with unit commanders and HAF FAMS While FAMs do the posturing, commanders must review and be aware of the impacts to their unit 5 March 2010 1:2 D DWX/AWX – Available upon reaching minimum surge DXX/AXX – Home station support, not normally available 1:1 E DPX/APX – CCDR in-place mission, not normally available

11 Tour Length Shift Over Time
30,847 Requirements 16,826 12,588 1,433 MESSAGE: AEF Tour Length Shift Over Time – represents “snap-shot” of current requirements TALKING POINTS: 365-Day data for Jan 10 was calculated on CY09, but Mar 10 data is calculated on CY10 requirements. AEF is a tool to execute the Combatant Commander’s requirements day deployments except for stressed career fields (SFS, CE, Intel) are happening because of Combatant Commander requirements. 120 are no longer the most occurring deployments and when you combine 179s and 365s they significantly outnumber 120 day deployments! Again, this does not mean that the AEF is broken – it is simply a shift in what the warfighter requires the AF to deliver. Sep 07 Jan 08 May 08 Sep 08 Jan 09 May 09 Sep 09 Jan 10 Mar10 365-day (CY10) 179-day (D09-May10) 120-day (AEF 3/4) 60% of taskings > 120-days 4 Mar 10 11

15 Tasking Process Key IPR notifies UDMs
IDO/MOF IPR Unit Airmen Key IDO & MOF accepts taskings at Wing 15 day clock starts UDMs prepare eligible unit Airmen Wheels Up Aircraft Departure Units process shortfalls as required Airmen process thru mobility line (>25) or complete individual checklist IPR notifies UDMs IPR inputs names in system and creates orders Unit CC/UDMs assign names & provide to IPR; Airmen notified MESSAGE Several base agencies ensure deployment taskings reach Airmen in a timely manner. TALKING POINTS IDO and manpower accept and verify the capability is authorized within the wing/unit and forward the requirement to IDRC IDRC reviews taskings and notifies units Unit commanders Decide which capability will fill the taskings Notify Airmen Provide names to IDRC IDRC inputs the names into the system (DCAPES) and creates orders UDMs prepare/equip Airmen for deployment Airmen outprocess the base More than 25 deployers normally process through mobility line Less than 25 deployers normally outprocess through checklist and IPR 5 March 2010

16 ART Reporting: How you can help!
ART Timeliness and Accuracy Minimizes late notice shortfalls / reclamas / re-taskings Ensures units only tasked for what they can provide Properly tracks residual forces Places the right people in the right place Used by all levels of command to determine the health of the force Substitutions generally not allowed in planning ART upward assessments discouraged MESSAGE: Commanders must be strong advocates of and strictly enforce accurate and timely ART reporting. reporting. TALKING POINTS: ART data is global and live It provides readiness feedback to all levels of command AFPC/DPW schedulers can ensure they only task packages capable of doing the job This in turn means that units are less likely to have shortfalls or need to submit reclamas. Residual forces are those forces remaining when only a portion of a capability is tasked By looking at the Tasking Assessments schedulers can reach into the remaining forces Makes more efficient use of our total force ART provides the ability to show the limitations of our resources Exp member is medically coded to only deploy to certain area Accurate readiness data ensures that schedulers and commanders make the most of limited assets Timeliness of reporting is included in briefings such as MAJCOM AEF Debriefs as well as Vice Chief of Staff of the AF (VCSAF) level updates When ART reporting is inaccurate or delayed, our schedulers task a “green” UTC that is, in fact, either “yellow” or “red”. By improving the accuracy and timeliness of ART reporting, we should reduce the number of unnecessary Condition I-IV reclamas and reduce the resultant re-sourcing that delays getting a valid name in the system. Background data: AF Substitution Rules and ART Excerpt from AFI   UTC personnel requirements are reflected in the UTC Manpower Detail (MANFOR). The AFSC/skill level/grade requirements listed in the UTC MANFOR must match AFSC/skill level/grade of the UMD positions postured. Substitutions of AFSC, skill level, and grade are allowed if specifically referenced in the MISCAP; however, the UTC must still be able to perform its MISCAP. EXCEPTION: Civil Engineers (CE) may substitute positions for posturing of UTCs IAW substitution rules outlined in AFI Additionally, for posturing, units can fill lower skill or grade UTC requirements with a higher UMD skill or grade position. When making AFSC and/or grade substitutions, changes should be reflected in the LLD of the postured UTC. If authorizations are unfilled, this must be reflected in ART. Units will not be tasked to provide personnel resources for wartime and/or major operation and campaign requirements that exceed their UMD authorizations unless authorized to posture above their authorizations. (See AFI for exceptions to posturing). In English – Substitution of AFSC or lower grade/skill level not authorized unless the MISCAP specifically allows; with any substitutions, the substitution must be noted in the Line Level Detail of the UTC and the UTC must still be able to meet its MISCAP. Excerpt from AFI (ART Reporting):   AFI Deployment Planning and Execution issues directives relating to personnel substitution. These directives apply for ART reporting purposes. For reporting purposes personnel substitutions reflected in the UTC MISCAP are authorized unless precluded in the deployment planning guidance.  In English – Substitution of AFSC or lower grade/skill level not authorized unless the MISCAP specifically allows; with any substitutions, the substitution must be noted in the Line Level Detail of the UTC and the UTC must still be able to meet its MISCAP. 5 March 2010 Update every 30 days or within 24 hrs of change

AEF Online Website MESSAGE AEF Online, AFPC/DPW’s webpage, has been developed to provide as much assistance as possible to individual deployers, unit deployment managers UDMs), installation deployment officers (IDOs), and commanders. NIPRNET and SIPRNET versions exist. TALKING POINTS The three most helpful pages for you to know about are: Deployment Information, Force Providers, and AEF Reference Library. We’ll start with Deployment information. Information for individual deployers includes the Personal Deployment Preparedness Tool ( a subset of the Commander’s Toolkit), Cultural Awareness, Entitlements, and family information. Next is Force Providers information. There is a spreadsheet of all of the AEF cells in the AF, transportation information, list of training/readiness requirements, deployment discrepancy checklist, and information on reintegration / reconsititution. The AEF Reference library can be accessed in two places on the home page. One location is at the graphic, the other location is under the search bar. The AEF Reference library is a great place to start a new UDM out on. It contains all of the AFIs that are relevant to the overall AEF, user manuals for the different AEF Online tools, and Air Force messages pertaining to the AEF. FOR MORE INFORMATION AEF Online at: 5 March 2010

18 Commander’s Toolkit Enables commanders or UDMs to quickly check medical, dental readiness and duty status Commanders have near real-time direct access to unit Individual Medical Readiness (IMR) status and due / overdue reports Updated weekly All Airmen can check Personal Deployment Preparedness MESSAGE Commander’s Tool Kit enables commanders to quickly check personnel, medical, and dental readiness information. TALKING POINTS Personnel data uses files from Military Personnel Data Systems (MILPDS) on Mondays Individual Medical Readiness (IMR) on Thursdays Data provided by Population Health Support Division (PHSD) at Brooks City Base Full refresh on Thursdays and change updates several times during the week FOR MORE INFORMATION IDO / UDM Guide to the AEF, Chapter 4 Log onto AEF Online, and then click on the CC Toolkit tab.

19 Guides to the AEF - IDOs, UDMs, IPRs, TMFs & Wing/Unit Senior leaders
MESSAGE The AEF Guides are quick reference tools. TALKING POINTS The WLG provides a broad overview of how the AEF works--for everyone involved in the process from front-line supervisors to commanders to key personnel working as part of the mobility machine (IDOs, UDMs, IPR personnel, TMFs). Do you need more information on training and exercises? How about UTCs, ART, and Reclamas? You can find more information on these subjects at a macro-level in this guide. Purpose: One-stop quick reference guide on hot AEF topics that impact leadership when preparing & executing the AEF Target audience: Supporting commanders at the wing, group, squadron, and flight levels Deputy commanders Senior noncommissioned officers Supervisors The IDO / UDM Guide was primarily built of members of the mobility machine, but provides great information for others who want to get deeper into the AEF processes. If you have questions about the different computer systems that are used in the AEF process, want step-by-step instructions on the reintegration process, or want to learn more about TPFDDs—this is the book to find that information. Purpose: One-stop quick reference guide on hot AEF topics that impact IDOs and UDMs from planning, preparation, all the way through execution IDOs, UDMs, IPR personnel, and TMFs Supporting leaders at the wing, group, squadron, and flight levels The DLG provides a broad overview of the issues that leaders face in a deployed environment with references to the AF Instructions and other guidance for further research. It includes information on rotating Airmen, security and force protection, base operating support, morale and discipline, managing resources, sister services, and cultural awareness. Purpose: To provide leaders in a deployed environment a common foundation to work from. Based on your career field you might be extremely knowledgeable about security and force protection, but need a jump-start on contracts and contractor support. Target Audience: Deploying and deployed leaders from technical sergeants through general officers. 5 March 2010 - IDOs, UDMs, IPRs, TMFs & Wing/Unit Senior leaders WG, GP, SQ and flight level CCs/CVs and Command-level leaders TSgts to general officer
