The Royal Australian Air Force has an outstanding record of achievement, across the spectrum of conflict from strike, surveillance or humanitarian support in the wake of natural disasters.
In the future, the challenges will increase as the technological options and capacity of aircraft increase. We must rise to this challenge with new ways of thinking, including new perspectives that a diverse workforce offers to seek new insights and push the technological possibilities further.
We are undertaking the largest technological upgrade in Air Force’s history, and we cannot use the model of the past as the model for the future. The F-35A, EA-18G Growler, P-8A Poseidon, E-7A Wedgetail and new OneSky air traffic management system will demand more from our people, operating concepts, training, support and systems and sustainment. All of these will need to be transformed to match the capacity of our aircraft.
Plan Jericho will transform our Air Force for the information age. Exploiting new capabilities to their full potential will be the difference between being an Air Force with fifth generation aircraft, and being a fifth generation Air Force. We will work with Army and Navy to ensure we deliver a networked future joint force across the spectrum of air, space, electromagnetic and cyber.
No one can see the future, but with our great people, mastery of the air domain and the opportunities through Plan Jericho Air Force is postured for anything the future may bring.
