Speaking of medical personnel, Peterson AFB, Colo., has just sent a contingent of its health staff to Ecuador. The 13-person team from the 21st Space Wing will remain in the country, working at different locations, for two weeks. They will pair with counterparts in the Ecuador Air Force, said wing officials. The Peterson team expects to see about 750 patients per day.
The Air Force has picked Northrop Grumman over L3Harris and Lockheed Martin to develop and build the Stand-in Attack Weapon, meant to swiftly destroy enemy air defense sites and other high-value targets.
