Abstract:

Some aspects of Air Force logistics in which important new developments are underway are described. The increasing reliance upon airlift and other problems whose solution will largely determine the logistics posture of the Air Force in the next decade are discussed. The military environment and the functions of the logistics system in the early 1960s are outlined. The developments discussed are steps in making the logistics system capable of performing its functions in that environment, namely introduction of improved logistics policies, the role of airlift, and how to maintain control over Air Force assets.
