    In mid-February, the Department of the Air Force’s senior civilian and military leaders unveiled sweeping plans for reshaping, refocusing, and reoptimizing the Air Force and Space Force to ensure continued supremacy in those domains while also better posturing the services to deter and, if necessary, prevail in an era of Great Power Competition. Andrew Hunter, the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, will play an outsized role implementing this initiative. Join Hunter for one of his first sit-down discussions with Jim Woolsey, DAU President, since the announcement of the effort.
