Cannon addresses “Air Force Roadmap”

CANNON AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. – The Chief of Staff of the Air Force, Gen. T. Michael Moseley, released today the Air Force’s weapon system “roadmap,” a long-term plan for providing the Air Force the capabilities needed in the 21st century to meet threats to the Nation’s security.

General Moseley’s roadmap outlines where future advanced weapon systems could potentially be based in the continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska and U.S. territories.

Cannon Air Force Base was mentioned three times in the roadmap as the future potential locations for the MQ-1 Predator, MQ-9 Reaper and CV-22 Osprey aircraft and weapons systems.

Specifics regarding the logistics and proposed timeline for the arrival of the proposed weapons systems were not mentioned as the roadmap is merely General Moseley’s outline for the potential locations of next-generation weapons systems and aircraft.
