How BRAC Impacts AFMC: How BRAC Impacts AFMC Closes Brooks City-Base TX Closes Air Force Research Lab, Mesa AZ Consolidates AF Research Lab Directorates across USA Assigns Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Training (flight and maintenance) responsibilities to Eglin AFB FL Realigns Army 7th Special Forces Group to Eglin AFB FL Realigns aircraft at Air Logistics centers (ALCs) at Tinker AFB OK, Hill AFB UT, Robins AFB GA) Transfers DoD-wide storage and supply functions at ALCs to Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Consolidates most AF transactional civilian personnel functions at Randolph AFB TX Why Do We Do BRACs?: Why Do We Do BRACs? End of Cold War and budget shortfalls have driven the entire military structure to a fraction of our size in the mid-1980s Since 1989, USAF strength (manpower) alone has declined 46% ~ 827,000 manpower authorizations in 1989 Projections: ~ 546,000 by the end of 2011 BRAC allows the United States, the Department of Defense, the Services, (like the U.S. Air Force) to reduce excess real property, infrastructure and consolidate missions to improve support for the warfighter—better, faster, cheaper This is the 5th BRAC conducted in the USAF since mid-80s AF Manpower Reductions, 1989-2011 : FY89-11: -46.1% AF Manpower Reductions, 1989-2011 Impact to WPAFB : Impact to WPAFB Vision: WPAFB will become the United States Air Force Center of Excellence for Sensors and Human Effectiveness, as well as a world-class institute for all aerospace medical research, education, and training.
