ARLINGTON, Va. (AFNS) -- The Air Force and Navy announce their Joint Physiological Episodes Action Team, or J-PEAT, Sept. 11 at the Pentagon, Arlington. In a collaborative effort of Force Integration, the Air Force will also rename their Unexplained Physiological Events Integration Team to the AF-PEAT.

“To better align with our National Defense Strategy, secretary of the Air Force tasked us to strengthen alliances and reform our business practices to improve readiness and deliver greater bang for the taxpayer buck,” said Brig. Gen. Edward Vaughan, AF-PEAT leader. “Adopting a common team name, creating the Joint PEAT and better leveraging our joint data, research and resources will improve safety and combat readiness.”

The Navy already has a Physiological Episodes website https://www.navy.mil/local/PEs/. Soon this site will be co-branded and populated with Air Force physiological episode information as well as new joint findings.

“We want to gather and share as much information as possible to bring viable solutions to the table,” said Rear Adm. Fredrick R. Luchtman. “This joint effort will help us to minimize risk faster and smarter. We owe it to our aviators. This partnership will help us tackle the complexities of physiological episodes on a broader scale by eliminating redundant efforts and maximizing the application of resources. It's a win-win across the board.”

The teams are already working together and look forward to using this collaborative joint environment to share ideas and best practices for problem solving.
