Mobility Wargame Concludes

GLOMO, the Global Mobility Wargame 2012, wrapped up at the Air Force Expeditionary Center at JB McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., announced Air Mobility Command officials on Aug 22. Some 65 air mobility experts took part in the command’s premier wargame, a biennial event that helps to validate transportation and logistics plans for a variety of possible scenarios. The wargame’s objectives included shaping the command’s strategic planning by evaluating mobility and logistics concepts up to 12 years into the future—and identifying opportunities to improve mobility and logistics effectiveness and reduce costs, said the AMC officials. “The results of GLOMO add mobility realism” to Unified Engagement, the Air Force Chief of Staff’s major operational-level wargame and “will also provide innovative solutions to meet future air mobility capability gaps,” said Brig. Gen. Jon Fago, AMC’s director of operations. (McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst report by TSgt. Zachary Wilson)
