Speed is Life: Accelerating the Air Force’s Ability to Adapt and Win

July 22, 2021

Success in tomorrow’s conflicts will largely depend on how warfighters are able to harness and adapt software, data, and algorithms at the unit level. The future must be one in which airmen are empowered to evolve software in a highly dynamic, responsive fashion to meet near-term mission demands.

The Mitchell Institute invites you to listen to the virtual event with Dr. Tim Grayson, Director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Strategic Technology Office. This event examined Heather Penney’s new policy paper, Speed is Life: Accelerating the Air Force’s Ability to Adapt and Win, which explores this vision and charts a pathway the Air Force and other services must adopt to succeed in an increasingly complex set of threats.

​​​​​​​The old adage, “Speed is life” is no longer just about flying—it’s about rapidly evolving mission tools to fight and win.
