How is the Air Force designing a force capable of meeting the future threats outlined in the National Defense Strategy? What are the critical changes in air warfare, and what can the United States do now to meet those challenges? On Tuesday, November 16 the Center for a New American Security hosted a one-on-one discussion with Air Force Lieutenant General Clint Hinote, Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategy, Integration and Requirements, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, on how to prepare for future warfighting challenges and refine near-term requirements to build the Air Force America needs.
This conversation is the first installment of the new CNAS Mission Brief speaker series, which will feature deep-dive discussions with the military and civilian leaders driving strategy and future force planning. Conversations will cover a wide array of topics, including future defense strategy and force design, new operational concepts, and balancing readiness with ongoing operations.
