So we just slowed the ramp. We actually go back to – Hold on a minute. Sir. Can somebody help me.

[Staff:]
James. James.

[Staff:]
You okay.

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
I’m gonna sit you back.

[Staff:]
Don’t worry we gotcha.

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
Can I get a chair.

[Staff:]
Here, take some water.

[Maj. Gen. James F. Martin Jr.:][Carolyn M. Gleason:]
It’s okay, you’re alright. That’s what the F-35 will do to you. It’s alright, sit down. Sit down, I’ll take it.

[Staff:]
Alright, sit down, sir.

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
Alright.

[Staff:]
There you go.

[Staff:] Source: LYBIO.net
Right there.

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
Of course now I have to do it without my glasses which – god only knows I won’t be able to read. You okay?

[Maj. Gen. James F. Martin Jr.:]
I’m okay.

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
He told me he was going to pull – no just – just have a seat. He kept threatening to pull a hammy. I didn’t think he really meant it. So all right. F-35. Um… basically, we’ve slowed the ramp. We’ll get back. Right now, we’re programmed to 60 aircraft in FY21 again. So it just

[Question:]
Can you just give year-by-year numbers so we have them?

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
So FY17 is 43; FY18 is 44; FY19 and ’20 are 48; and ’21 is 60. And you asked about cost a little bit on F-35. That program, as you know, has three services, FMS customers and partners. And so right now, we don’t expect the reduction in Air Force quantities to affect the cost of the platform.

[Staff:]
Over here.

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
This is [Brigadier General] Ed Fienga.

[Question:]
John Tirpak, Air Force Magazine. Given the delays in the F-35, what does this mean for SLEP in the F-15 and F-16 fleets? I don’t see very much in here about that except wiring for the F-16 AESA. Can you explain what this is all about?

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
So we do have F-15 SLEP in our budget. I’ll let General Fienga help me with that.

[Gen. Edward A. Fienga:]
Right. So it’s an excellent question. And as General Martin was talking about that full spectrum readiness earlier, you know, so — and the risks we had to take with the BBA to our modernization, you’re absolutely right, we would have to bolster our fourth-gen aircraft. So we do have some dollars for both F-16 and F-15 service life extension sort of modernization programs here.

Now, this is an area we did have to take risk in in this budget, so we don’t have robust programs, and that too is a result of the reduced amount of dollars that the BBA gave us. But you’re right, we do have some dollars in there.

[Question:]
So what do you get? Do you — do you get the structural upgrades or the radar or —

[Gen. Edward A. Fienga:]
Right, with the — with the F-15, we do a couple of things. We put some structural dollars in there and we also have the F-15 EPAWS program as well. So that will make it viable in those environments against a higher-class adversary.

For the F-16, as you know, perhaps you’ve heard, we do fund some AESA radars in two sort of tranches. The first tranche is 24 F-16s for the National Capital Region. That’s in a homeland defense sort of scenario. And then there is another tranche of AESA radars with digital radar warning receivers of 52 AESA radars. And that’s to sort of put some more of those AESA radars —

52.

[Gen. Edward A. Fienga:]
— 52 throughout the fleet. And that’s over the course of the FYDP. The first tranche will get in about Fiscal Year ’19.

(CROSSTALK)

[Question:]
— keep them all together somehow?

[Gen. Edward A. Fienga:]
And for the homeland defense purpose, we’ll have three different sites with eight different aircraft each for a total of 24 aircraft serving that homeland defense role with the AESA radars.

[Question:]
That’s out of the 52?

[Staff:]
We have time for one last question. Pardon?

[Question:]
Out of the 52?

[Staff:]
No, that’s 24 separate and then another separate tranche of 52 AESA radars.

[Question:]
Hi, Jennifer Hlad from Air Force Magazine. You talked about building up the RPA force, the nuclear enterprise, cyber. Are all of those going to be new members of the Air Force, or are you going to build that up, you know, maybe make some of the other enterprises a little bit smaller? Are people going to be moving around a lot, or just how are you going to do that, I guess.

[Gen. Edward A. Fienga:]
Right. And this is — this is an actual question we had to ask ourselves as we built this budget, right? So how are we going to get enough people to do all the things that we need to do —

[Carolyn M. Gleason:]
That we’re being asked to do.

[Gen. Edward A. Fienga:]
— and that we’re being asked to do and that the nation and the combatant commanders have asked us to do. So excellent question, we ask that of ourselves. And for the most part, we recognized, look, we need many more airmen than we currently have, right. And so we initially went in with a larger number, recognizing there are some validated requirements that we have for a much larger Air Force then what we’re asking for, but as General Martin alluded to, in many of the areas we’re sort of producing at our max executable rate. So even though we wanted more airmen for Fiscal Year ’17, we can only get so many airmen through the training pipelines.

And so what we do first is we put more instructors at places like BMT, the basic military training, and we put more instructors at the RPA units so they can then get more students through those classes and open those pipelines so we can get those up operators out to those specific locations where they would conduct that operation.

So in this case, for ’17, it’s more airmen in the case of RPAs and cyber, but in other cases like the aircraft maintenance, over the course of the FYDP as we draw down certain aircraft, we’ll take those maintainers and move them onto the next F-35 or other sort of situations. So we’re re-purposing in that particular instance.

All right. That’s all our time. I really appreciate your patience. Please e-mail me and I’ll take all the other questions for follow-up.
