The RAAF’s Chief of AIRMSHL Air Force ‘Leo’ Davies has established the next stage of the Strategy Jericho attempt to transform the broader and RAAF ADF.
Offering the opening comments on the sidelines of the 2019 Avalon Airshow about February 25 at Industry Aerospace Conference & the Defence, AIRMSHL Davies stated consolidation and the evaluation of existing, and the development of new partnerships was key to realising success.
“As CAF, I have two capability management responsibilities,” he said. &ldquo I need to provide an Air Force today that’s part of a combined force that is capable of fulfilling the full expectations of the government.
&ldquo I have to design an Air Force for the future that’s capable of existing at a shifting contest.
“While there can be little doubt about my apparent bias, in regards to delivering preparedness now, I think the RAAF has always proven our capability to generate airpower, produce the required consequences, and successfully lead to all aspects of our continued security. ”
AIRMSHL Davies said though the RAAF was now mid-way throughout the transition to the RAAF can a new airpower fleet & rsquo;t only expect to buy its way to the generation.
AIRMSHL Davies described those partnerships including those organisations in research and development, in global associate solutions, other parts of the ADF, and business.
“If you ask me to describe why chosen partnerships is that this year’s motif, it’so because I know that Air Force wouldn’t be able to realise the 5th generation potential timeline,” he said. “To Socialize in the future, it will be essential to take advantage of what we have assembled with our combined, business, and researchers and global partners.
“The good news is we’ve got great foundation in understanding that you are being helped by working together. ”
AIRMSHL Davies also gave attention to the effect of commercial aerospace initiatives in helping better outcomes to be realised by the RAAF in sustainment.
“We’ve seen innovation from civil aviation which ’s allowed us to reevaluate our sustaining, and also to find out about effect on the surroundings,&rdquo.
&ldquoWe could approach the upkeep, and realise that some components need not be accomplished by Air Force, and in fact, we realised that some components should not be accomplished by Air Force. All these new arrangements giving us the flexibility to make experience, to the border that is war-fighting and back up. ”
He said the benefits of a 5th generation Air Force won’t only be realised with the capabilities provided by the new systems being obtained, but may only be accomplished when the ADF employs an integrated system-of-systems to make decisive, painful, and unexpected warfare fighting consequences.
