The Air Force is implementing a new rapid weapons strategy
Track some high-
Priority War systems including satellite sensors and supersonic weapons
52 engines, nuclear missiles and combat sensors.
'We want to speed things up earlier and bend the metal immediately for learning, rather than wasting time on paper,' said William Roper, assistant secretary of Air Force, acquisition, technology and logistics, the audience was recently told at a seminar at the Air Force Association.
Roper explained that this approach requires rapid and early prototyping of new weapons to quickly identify effective methods.
He explained that, of course, this approach presents a certain level of additional risk, which is a necessary part of the process.
Although the intention is never to fail in the battle
Failure is an opportunity to learn and make adjustments quickly.
Early technical adjustments in the acquisition process are easier to implement and are critical to keeping up with the threats that are expected to arise.
Roper talked about using a Pentagon rapid development plan called '804 middle-level acquisitions.
'The plan was approved by Congress a few years ago to release funds earlier to achieve rapid growth. NAVY'S TORPEDO-
Armed spy planes are tracking China's nuclear submarines, and it is no mystery why the US Navy is so energetic in emphasizing this approach;
According to Pentagon observers, potential U. S. rivals are building technology at an alarming rate.
According to comments consistently made by Pentagon leaders and senior weapons developers, satellite weapons, hypersonics, artificial intelligence and stealth platforms may be surpassing or at least seriously matching the technological advantages of the United States.
According to Roper, a handful of important weapons systems are now benefiting from accelerated acquisitions.
Some of them include buying new business engines for the historic B-

He said infrared sensors capable of identifying enemy missiles launched from space will arrive three years in advance.
'We are building a brand new sensor,' Roper explained at AFA . '.
Given China's recent test of supersonic weapons, no one at the Pentagon has lost, and it's not surprising that the Air Force is citing rapid progress in its massive accelerated supersonic weapons program.
The work is currently progressing smoothly and is moving towards the stated Air Force goal of having a saleable supersonic weapon within a few years.
Zuckerberg put forward a vision for 'privacy'
Focusing on 'social networks,' Roper said, 'We can't use Cold War acquisitions listlessly for every project . '.
Innovation like digital engineering is fast.
Improve the development of weapons by supporting computer modeling of weapons systems.
This may lead to the possibility of avoiding many years of design experiments and early construction --
Focus on what is the best choice.
One example of this approach, Roper says, is the emerging new arsenal of ICBM, called the ground-
Based on strategic deterrence (GBSD).
'With digital engineering, we can see 10 to 20 designs,' he explained . '.
Given the aging of the militia iii icbm, the project is becoming a central stage for the Air Force.
The service has awarded two development agreements to Northrop Grumman and Boeing and plans to launch an early prototype as early as next year.
Modernization for -wing
Warthog also gained the benefits of digital engineering, Roper added.
On last June, Roper sent a letter across the Air Force detailing this 'quick acquisition and prototyping' process and referring to the initial success.
'So far, we have approved or are in the process of carrying out eight rapid acquisition activities, with a potential timeline of about 25 years accelerating,' the letter said . '.
Roper stressed that most of this rapid progress, even the fate of the US military, may depend on the speed of software development.
Weapon upgrades, new systems, computer programs, sensors, and targeting technologies can all be substantially improved or changed through software upgrades.
Roper sometimes even says that the software itself may be the determining factor in who wins the future war.
'We need to think about how to develop software in different ways.
Historically, we have been having a tough start in business. ups.
'The contract process we are working with small innovation companies is too slow,' Roper said . '.
'You can have the best aircraft, but you will still lose a war if you don't have the right software.

Ultimately, this effort will lead the Air Force to draft a new F-22 sensors.
Roper stressed that the modernization efforts, adjustments or innovations that could be achieved by these software demonstrate the importance of better linking the scientific and technical initiatives of the service with existing documented weapons programs.
'We can't predict the enemies of 2030, and we can't build an air force to beat them,' Roper said . '.
