Allen M. Murashige, a member of the scientific and professional cadre of senior executives, is Chief Scientist, Directorate of Warfighter Systems Integration and Deployment, Secretary of the Air Force Office of Warfighting Integration and Chief Information Officer, the Pentagon, Washington, D.C. Mr. Murashige provides scientific and technical advice and recommends policies to enhance Air Force C4ISR integration via architectures and assessments, as well as Air Force modeling, simulation and analysis concepts and capabilities. He guides the formulation of strategic goals and measures for Air Force information technology enterprise integration. Mr. Murashige is also the U.S. representative to the System Analysis and Studies Panel of the NATO Research and Technology Organization.

Mr. Murashige began his career in 1968 at the Air Force Western Test Range, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., as an aerospace engineer on the Minuteman ICBM test program. After completing a graduate fellowship in 1973, he returned to Vandenberg as an operations research analyst with the Space and Missile Test Center supporting the MX intercontinental ballistic missile and space shuttle programs. In 1977, Mr. Murashige transferred to the operations analysis office at Headquarters U.S. Air Forces in Europe, Ramstein Air Base. During his 10 years at USAFE, he analyzed war plans, weapon systems, tactics and operations, and worked extensively with our NATO allies, directing the operations analysis cell on the NATO Allied Air Forces battle staff in the air warfare command center. He was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Service Award by the USAFE Commander in Chief for his analytical support to the U.S. air attack on Libya.

Mr. Murashige was selected to enter the Scientific and Professional Executive Corps in 1987 and was assigned to the Pentagon as scientific and technical adviser to the Assistant Chief of Staff, Air Force Studies and Analyses. In addition to providing technical advice and analytical methodologies for weapon system, force structure and resource allocation studies, Mr. Murashige represented the Air Force on a number of senior technical boards and committees, both national and international in scope. He became the Chief Scientist for Air Force Modeling, Simulation and Analysis in June 1996, and was responsible for establishing the Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation in Orlando, Fla. He was chosen to be the Chief Scientist for the new Directorate of Command and Control in January 1997. During this period Mr. Murashige also established and chaired the Innovation Panel on the Air Force Corporate Structure, which managed a $2 billion portfolio of advanced concept technology demonstrations, battle laboratories, wargames, experiments and other innovation initiatives. Mr. Murashige subsequently established and chaired the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Architecture Council.
