What will the U.S. Air Force look like in 2030? What combination of aircraft will be needed to face the threats of the future? Three different organizations were tasked by Congress to figure out just that: the U.S. Air Force, the MITRE Corporation, and the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. These three studies vary in their approach, methodology, and detail.

During this session, Todd Harrison will release his assessment of the three studies. Mr. Harrison will be joined by a stellar panel of airpower experts to lend their thoughts on the future construct of the U.S. Air Force.
