Roberto Guerrero: Air Force Should Improve Operational Data Analysis to Boost Combat Capability

Roberto Guerrero, deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Air Force for operational energy, has said the service should build up readiness and combat capability against potential adversaries through comprehensive collection and analysis of data related to operational energy use.

“By collecting flight data across all aircraft and missions, measuring fuel use and other operational parameters, and analyzing how we equip our ranges and conduct training, we can better understand operational and logistical challenges,” he wrote in a Defense News commentary published Thursday.

He noted how a data algorithm-based tool, Jigsaw, has helped the Air Force manage aerial refueling operations.

Guerrero called on all major commands to advance collaboration to improve the collection and analysis of flight data as the service aims to keep its competitive edge against enemies.

“Better operational data collection means better operational analysis — and better operational analysis means increased readiness and greater lethality,” he added.
