The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has asked Congress for approval to shift $216.7 million in funds, including $131 million for the Advanced Battle Management System and another $25 million for the Agility Prime program, Inside Defense reported Tuesday.

The service wants to reprogram $97 million in funds allocated for the Multidomain Command-and-Control account toward the ABMS program as part of efforts to integrate the two accounts into a single program element in budget activity 4, according to a reprogramming document signed by Elaine McCusker, acting comptroller of the Department of Defense (DoD).

The Air Force also requested to transfer $25 million from the Aerospace Technology Development/Demonstration account to Agility Prime, which seeks to speed up technology adoption in the electric vertical take-off and landing sector.

The service said the reprogramming plan seeks to reflect the prototyping and experimentation work it intends to carry out.
