Air Force Life Cycle Management Center

July 2012 saw numerous changes in unit organization, as the the Aerospace Sustainment Directorate was deactivated and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center -- one of five centers under Air Force Materiel Command -- was activated.   The center is responsible for the total life cycle management of Air Force weapon systems.  The former ASD offices have remained in place, but now report to different executive offices at the AFLCMC:

 -- The C-5 Division, C-17 Division and Tactical Air Division report to the Mobility Directorate. (Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio)

 -- The F-15 Division reports to the Fighters/Bombers Directorate.  (Wright-Patterson AFB)

 -- The Special Operations Forces/Personnel Recovery Division, Predator/Reaper Branch, Global Hawk Branch and U-2 Division report to the ISR/SOF Directorate. (Wright-Patterson AFB)

 -- The Special Operations Forces/Personnel Recovery Division, Predator/Reaper Branch and U-2 Division report to the ISR/SOF Directorate. (Wright-Patterson AFB)

 -- The Specialized Management Division reports to the Armament Directorate (Eglin AFB, Fla.)

 -- The Command & Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance and JSTARS program offices report to the Battle Management Directorate. (Hanscom AFB, Mass.)
