Soldiers at the AETF
have already conducted testing on FCS equipment while acting as a heavy brigade combat team.
The ability of an AETF
, Air Expeditionary Wing, or Expeditionary Operations Group commander to assume control authority of otherwise independent or isolated forces is fundamental to the concept of distributed control.
mission of testing and evaluation is vital in determining where Soldiers want to go with the FCS equipment, Hardy said.
Once the AETF

at Fort Bliss in preparation for the program-led user assessment of the Rifleman Radio.
The practical results of this merger of operational and tactical Airmen under the same AETF
roof have been overwhelmingly positive.
Serving multiple roles simultaneously and AETF
