Maj. Gen. Clinton Crosier, director of operational capability requirements for the U.S. Air Force deputy chief of staff for strategic plans and requirements, has been appointed as director of warfighting integration capability within the same office, the Defense Department said Thursday.
In his current role, Crosier develops policy for operational capabilities-based requirements and oversees the creation of requirements documents for the approval of the Joint Requirements Oversight Council.
Crosier joined the Air Force in 1988 and has since assumed posts of increasing responsibility, such as director of plans and policy at the U.S. Strategic Command; deputy director of Stratcom’s global operations directorate; and director of strategic plans, programs, requirements and assessments at the Air Force Global Strike Command.
His experience spans intercontinental ballistic missile and space operations, including stints as director of space forces at the U.S. Central Command; commander of the 460th Space Wing; and space and missile adviser to the Secretary of the Air Force Action Group, among others.
Crosier holds a degree in aerospace engineering from Iowa State University, which he attended on an Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps scholarship.
