Mission Excellence

Our responsibility to ‘first detect and first report’ missile launches hostile to U.S. interests, while providing Overhead Persistent InfraRed (OPIR) surveillance of denied areas is our covenant to American people and the joint/combined force. As threats to the homeland and our fielded forces develop in scope and lethality, it is essential we sharpen our focus on mission excellence, expand our preparation and planning efforts to account for anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) threats, and take proactive steps to improve our posture to protect, defend and operate thru a Contested, Degraded, and Operationally-limited (CDO) environment.

Installation Readiness

Our ability to ensure mission excellence and invest in our Airmen and their families is inextricably bound to our installation readiness. In other words, how we respond to crises, care for our AF family, and counter threats to operations is dependent on the resilience of BOTH our Airmen AND infrastructure. Therefore, we will prioritize an installation readiness posture appropriate to a 24/7 national security mission with the highest standards for operational availability. In addition, we will improve AT/FP readiness, as well as AF family care / assistance program responsiveness. Moreover, in order to ensure progress and sustain momentum, we must establish and/or expand community partnerships and re-allocate wing resources where necessary. Finally, a robust inspection program is critical to assessing our posture and leaders will bolster installation self-assessment programs, as needed, to validate mission and installation readiness.

Airmen and Families

Our AF is now smaller than it has ever been! The security environment has gotten increasingly dangerous with a simultaneity and pace to national challenges that have placed significant strain on our Airmen and their families. In the 460 SW we are Wingmen and we will treat every Airman and family with dignity and respect. We will strengthen investment in their personal and professional growth. In doing so, we will implement strategically-tailored leader development seminars, process improvement initiatives, and Quality of Life programs that optimize Airman and family readiness and resilience. Furthermore, leaders at all levels must re-invigorate their focus on pride, professionalism, discipline and readiness as fundamental competencies required in every Airman.
