Abstract : Air Force Wide Mission Area Analysis (AFWMAA) is a macro systems analysis used to measure USAF combat capability in four major mission areas: strategic offense, strategic defense, force projection, and theater warfare. The process compares friendly and enemy forces over the next 15 years, assesses contributions of individual programs, identifies chokepoints and limitations in the system, and prioritizes needs to improve capabilities.
