The Air Force Materiel Command has merged two of its directorates into a single unit that will work to coordinate logistics, sustainment and installation services for the U.S. Air Force‘s nuclear modernization efforts.
UFMC said Monday its Logistics, Civil Engineering, Force Protection and Nuclear Integration Directorate will establish the workforce and infrastructure needed to support weapon systems, acquisition logistics, suppliers, depot maintenance and nuclear integration activities across the service branch.
The unified organization has eight divisions and holds the A4/10 designation.
Brig. Gen. Allan Day, director of the newly formed group, said the merger will “help synchronize our nuclear efforts with our other relevant core competencies of maintenance, logistics, force protection and civil engineering.”
The staff nuclear principal at AFMC headquarters has also elevated to the grade of flag officer and will help the command manage nuclear enterprise systems.
