AMC’s ID 2017 provides a legal, yet dynamic environment for information flow from AMC senior leaders to senior leaders in commercial, research, and academic sectors. Industry and research conduits are gained by gathering a first-hand understanding of AMC’s priorities and mission direction in the near, mid, and far terms. AMC gains from products better suited to the command’s requirements, at lower costs, and within desired timeframes.
By sharing AMC’s vision with industry and research center leaders and representatives, our ID 2017 team hopes to give attendees the opportunity to match their strategies with the command’s vision. Our ultimate goals are effective products, at affordable costs, ready to perform the mission when we need them in support of our Rapid Global Mobility Vision.
