AFAMS is organized into three divisions:
The aim of the eXploration division is to explore
transformative and disruptive technology to gain insight to effectively
collaborate with others to Drive Innovation and adoption. The division
collaborates and liaises with relevant partner organizations to conduct risk
reduction of technology and standards and allow the Air Force to bridge the
training and readiness gap between now and when the joint simulation
environment (JSE) comes online for routine training use.
The division drives innovation in multiple focus areas:
- M&S Government Reference Architecture (GRA) for
Synthetic Environments, which provides the constraints and guidelines focused
on the future.
- Zero Trust Data Segmentation, which is imperative to
achieve multi-level security (MLS).
- M&S Standards Efforts, which provides a common set of
guidelines and specifications ensuring compatibility and interoperability.
- Immersive Technology Planning Guide, which is an
application that identifies current augmented, virtual, and mixed reality
- Simulator, Lightweight Exploration Device (SLED), which is
an immersive training platform to test out future concepts to apply to
operational training systems.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI), which refers to simulation
used to imitate the intellectual behaviors

The Requirements Division supports the Air Force operational
training enterprise by addressing requirements for both current and future Air
Force operational training infrastructures.
The Requirements Division leads the
Air Force Operational Training Infrastructure Line of Effort (LoE) for Joint
Interoperability/interagency as well as assesses emerging capabilities within
Joint Forces, Industry, and Academia.
As the requirements lead for the Command
and Control Synthetic Environment and the Simulator Common Architecture
Requirements & Standards efforts the Requirements Division collaborates
with Headquarters Air Force and MAJCOMs to identify, prioritize, track, and
advocate for enterprise level operational training requirements (e.g.,
cross-domain training architecture and future constructive training
Additionally, the Requirements Division executes the Risk
Management Framework Security effort on behalf of HAF/A3T.
The Mission Support division supports Operational Training Infrastructure’s (OTI) strategic and tactical approaches to advocate the advancement of future and current Air Force enterprise training.
As the Executive Agent for Human Capital, the Mission Support division maintains the effectiveness, productivity, and skill sets of our forces for the long-term and short-term readiness of the Air Force and Joint Forces.
Additionally, the Mission Support division leads the Air Force OTI modeling and simulation knowledge management efforts to enable collaboration, reusability, and interoperability.
