Tempo Band ___ is the AEF baseline construct with three 6-month blocks. (2-2) Tempo Band D
Tempo Band ___ is the AEF baseline construct with two 6-month blocks. (2-2) Tempo Band E
What are the three main AEF key principles? (2-2) (1)Predictability (2)Equitability (3)Transparency
Alignment of forces across AEF blocks defines battle rhythm and allows the Air Force to address the questions, "Who goes first?" and "Who goes next?" describes what AEF Key Principle? (2-3) Predictability
An equitable share of taskings between similarly skilled coded units in the same functional areas to deploy at the same pace throughout the Air Force---describes what AEF key principle? (2-3) Equitability
The sense that there is no mystery to the process: the when, why, and how should be visible and understood by every Airman. Describes what AEF key principle? (2-3) Transparency
Under AEF key elements, list the common user assets in the enabler force. (2-3) (1)Global Mobility Forces (2)Special Operations (SOF)& Personnel Recovery Forces (3)Space Forces (4)Other uniquely categorized forces
Which AEF Key element is considered high demand low supply (HD/LS) & rotate as operational requirements dictate? (2-3) Enabler
Define institutional force. forces assigned to organizations responsible to carry out statutory functions (eg organize, train, equip, recruit) at AF level (eg HHQ, core pipeline training, recruiting, & acquisition)
What is a MISCAP statement? A short paragraph which describes the mission a Unit Type Code (UTC)is capable of accomplishing. Describes significant employment info and be classified/unclassifed
A MISCAP should include the following(2-5) 1. Brief explanation of mission capabiliities 2. Type/amount of workload UTC is capable of performing. 3. Types of bases to which unit can be deployed 4. Response Capability 5. Other UTC's required to support defined capability 6. Classification
The Manpower Force Element (MFE) contains: (2-5) - Employed Functional Account Code (FAC) - AFSC - Grade (optional for enlisted) - Special Experience Identifier (SEI) - Command remarks (if applicable) - Quantity
What is the Logistics Detail (LOGDET) (2-6) the equipment portion of a UTC that contains descriptions of each piece of equipment, national stock number, quantity, movement characteristics, size and weight of each item.
Some examples of reasons for a new UTC are... (2-6) - New equipment - significant change in operational concept or mission - significant program changes to manpower or equipment
AF Functional Area Managers (FAMs) (2-7) usually initiate development of a new UTC UTC development begins at least 120 days prior to initial operational capability (IOC). New UTC requests submitted through DCAPES to HAF/A5XW.
Posturing (2-7) the act of converting the unit manpower document into UTCs and aligning them to a specific AEF
Each UTC is assigned(2-7) a 3-character availability code
Coding of Additional UTC Characters: "X" (2-8) 2nd character: shows home station requirement (D-UTCs) or UTC may be deployed as long as a like asset remains on home station (A-UTCs) 3rd character: denotes UTCs not normally available during their AEF vulnerability period w/o impacting home station ops
Unit CCs, through the UDM will: (2-8) - assign incoming airmen an AEFI within 15 days and notify airmen of new AEF assinment; remain in AEF for duration of assignment to the unit, unless the UTC is realigned - not assign airman to position the would req. him/her to deploy 2nd in same cycle
What is RFL03? (2-10) PFS Force Support Beddown; 13 member team Provides limited initial food service, lodging, MA, fitness, recreation, resale ops, and NAFI support (pops up to 275;10 days) and accountability, casualty reporting and personnel program advice for pops up to 1,6

What is RFSEW? (2-11) SVS bottled water; equipment UTC
AETF force modules consist of six scalable, modular elements that include the following: (2-12) 1. Open airbase 2. Command and control (c2) 3. Establish the airbase 4. Generate the mission (not EFSS) 5. Operate the airbase 6. Robust the airbase
Open airbase (2-12) RFL01 Forces that open the airbase ARRIVE FIRST and assess airbase for establishment of min.airfield operating parameters, C2, & supporting host nation support capabilities Rapidly est. an IOC in approx. 24 hours from arrival
Command & Control (C2) (2-12) RFL 05 Contains capabilities to est. an Air Expeditionary Wing (AEW) C2 structure IOC approx 16 hours after arrival
Establish the Airbase (2-12) RFSEW, RFSEM, & RFSR1 Limited forces to bring base to IOC Provides airfield's earliest capability to execute its assigned mission IOC approx 4 days
Generate the mission (2-12) 13 Generate the Mission FMs that support 13 different mission areas No EFSS
Operate the Airbase (2-12) RFSRB Needed to achieve full operating capability Enhance force protection, comm, cargo handling, feeding/sheltering, QoL activities, health-care, and reach back capabilities C+2 to on or or before C+14
Robust the Airbase (2-13) Support forces don't arrive until 30 days after an operating location is established Provides additional Expeditionary Combat Support forces to robust the capabilities already in place
Augmentation (or Extended) FMs (2-13) Provides additional capability to meets more demanding requirement with extended capabilities
Rotation FMs (2-13) Subset of AETF FMs with tailored, pre-identified functional equipment and personnel that do not need to be replaced if the deployed. Location is supporting rotational operations
Force Support force Modules: Open Airbase (2-14) Two critical capabilities FS provides from the onset of of an operation are accountability and casualty reporting The UTC sent to est. IOC is RFL01
Force Support Force Modules: Establish the Airbase (2-14) Bulk force support UTCs arrive during est. the air base FM FS focuses on establishing initial capabilities for critical support activities
Force Support Force Modules: Robust the Airbase (2-14) Food service will migrate from MREs and UGRs to providing A rations ("real food") for every meal service
