USAF PEO Battle Management Redesignated With More Digital Focus

The U.S. Air Force's Program Executive Office Battle Management has been redesignated to continue operations as PEO Digital at Hanscom Air Force Base.

The renamed and redesignated PEO will work to implement acquisition processes for Agile DevOps software across the service branch, Air Force Materiel Command said Monday.

Steven Wert, previously Hanscom's PEO for battle management, will lead PEO Digital.

PEO Digital will build on and expand Project Kessel Run, which worked to develop technologies for streamlining Air Force combat management and tasking processes.

"We established a directorate-wide goal last summer to challenge the process and innovate, and now as PEO Digital, we have the charge to continue those efforts and help apply them throughout the Air Force," said Wert.

The PEO will retain the battle management portfolio, and expand to design and field software products, automate cybersecurity processes, operate with cloud infrastructure and integrate testing activities.

The office's corresponding organization will be renamed as the Digital Directorate and resume work under the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center.
