NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The Air Land Sea Application Center will visit Nellis Air Force Base for the annual Weapons and Tactics Conference Trade Show here Jan. 15 and 16.

According to the Air Combat Command Official website, the Combat Air Forces WEPTAC is an annual two week event that brings together hundreds of warfighters from the CAF to discuss current issues, to look at future issues, and to provide solutions for joint employment of forces. New technology is a key area. Attendance is primarily Air Force members, but there has been an increasing amount of participation from the Army, Navy and Marines. The movement focuses on joint warfighting.

ALSA, located at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., may be an organization some may only recognize by name, but for whom many can be thankful for the products of their labor.

As the Joint Staff produces publications for the operational and strategic community, ALSA is the lead organization that provides joint doctrine at the tactical level.

It is a unique opportunity for assigned action officers to work on a joint staff and remain close to the tactical warfighter.

ALSA is recognized not only in the U.S. military, but also among allies as one of the lead organizations in the development of tactical level and multi-service tactics, techniques and procedures.

ALSA’s mission is to rapidly and responsively develop Multiservice Tactics, Techniques and Procedures publications and solutions across the spectrum of military operations to meet the immediate needs of the warfighter.

WEPTAC provides an environment for ALSA to interact with warfighters and senior leaders from all over the Air Force in one location to ensure our multi-Service doctrine is meeting their needs.

Their publications have been used by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and coalition forces who have deployed to support numerous operations and exercises.

ALSA welcomes all WEPTAC attendees to stop by their booth and provide comments on current publications and recommendations for future MTTP. WEPTAC attendees may also sign up to receive ALSA’s quarterly update that provides links to the latest publications and articles focused on the joint warfighter.

ALSA’s publications are available to the entire military community. Warfighters are invited to access the ALSA website at www.alsa.mil.
