US Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) commander General Charles Brown wants the US Air Force's (USAF's) third Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) demonstration in his area of responsibility, he said at the Air Force Association's (AFA's) Air Warfare Symposium on 27 February.

Responding to a question from Jane's, Gen Brown said he wants to evaluate the various platforms that not only the USAF would connect, but also the various capabilities of joint Pentagon partners and allied nations. He said that PACAF is still working through the details of which platforms he would want to test, but said that it would be ones that would support the USAF going down the appropriate path with ABMS.
