Located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, Aeronautical Systems Center is the largest of three product centers within Air Force Materiel Command. The center designs, develops and delivers dominant aerospace weapon systems and capabilities for the U.S. Air Force, other U.S. military, allied and coalition-partner warfighters, in support of Air Force leadership priorities.

ASC manages 466 Air Force, joint and international aircraft acquisition programs and related projects; executes an annual budget of approximately $23 billion and employs a work force of more than 10,600 people, located atWright-Pattand 38 other locations worldwide.

In July 2010 ASC reorganized into a directorate, division, and branch structure, as part of the Air Force Acquisition Improvement Plan. Five new Program Executive Officer positions were created for a total of six to address span of control, enable greater depth of knowledge of programs in assigned portfolios and allow PEOs to focus on program execution. Each PEO reports on their portfolio to the Service Acquisition Executive at the Pentagon. This initiative is designed to establish clear lines of authority and accountability within acquisition organizations.

The ASC commander remains the Air Force's PEO for aircraft systems. He is joined by PEOs for:
  • Fighters and Bombers
  • Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance / Special Operations Forces
  • Mobility
  • Agile Combat Support
  • KC-X tanker acquisition
The center focuses on speed and innovation in acquisition management, as well as on rapid transition of technology into systems, business practices, development and retention of a high performance work force, and formation of strong partnerships with war-fighting operators in the field, industry and the local community.
