CLEVELAND, Ohio (AFNS) -- Three members of the Air Force’s Mission Thread Analysis team were recognized for their work in support of the Air Force’s Mission Assurance through Energy Assurance initiative with a Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program FEDS Spotlight on August 22nd at Energy Exchange 2018. The FEDS Spotlight recognizes individuals who have gone above and beyond day-to-day responsibilities to help achieve mission success.

The three winners —Col. Aaron Altwies from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, Tinker Air Force Base’s Mr. Kenneth McKuen, and Lt. Col. Eric Zarybnisky for his efforts while at Vandenberg AFB — were honored for their support and participation in MTA workshops held at their installations over the last year.

Leslie Nicholls, FEMP’s acting director, presented each winner with certificates of achievement and John Henderson, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy, presented each winner with coins.

“These award winners are leading by example to drive innovation at our bases in order to enable the overall readiness and resiliency of our team,” said Mr. Henderson. “We are grateful for the amazing efforts by our Airmen, Air Force civilians and community partners which continue to ensure the success of our Air Force and Nation.”

“These individuals were absolutely instrumental in assisting the Headquarters MTA team in facilitating workshops at their installations,” said Mark Correll, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for environment, safety and infrastructure. “Their tireless efforts and continued support of this effort, in addition to their foundational duties, ensured workshop success.”

The MTA process begins with an in-person workshop to facilitate a collaborative mission-owner discussion of a mission thread with a strategic look at mission operations and dependencies, including those with other government agencies and industry partners. The workshop is coupled with a quantitative analysis based system modeling and risk assessment to better understand where enabling systems may introduce vulnerabilities to mission operations.

Leveraging this work by the MTA team, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment and Energy plans to continue these efforts with the end goal of driving informed investment priorities that improve energy and water resilience to directly support the warfighter.
