Maj. Gen. Michael Fantini, the Air Force’s director of warfighting integration capability, said during a panel discussion in Arlington, Va. that the service branch is establishing 10 cross-functional teams, National Defense Magazine reported Wednesday. 

Fantini told attendees at an Air Force Association event that the CFTs will focus on modernizing capabilities for combat power generation, logistics, cyber and space-related activities. He added that there are “elements of equivalency” between the planned teams and the eight CFTs under the Army Futures Command, which was established last year.

The Air Force teams’ creation come as the service continues efforts to develop next-generation air dominance technologies to combat potential threats from China and Russia.
