Welcome to the 5th Annual Life Cycle Industry Days (LCID), an Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) event. The theme of LCID 2021 is “Accelerating Change to Empower the Warfighter”, aligning to CSAF General Brown’s strategic approach and addressing Action Order C - Competition. LCID aims to explore how we can better equip, sustain, and propel forward Weapon Systems for our Airmen.

The first two days will include keynote speakers and panel forums. Senior decision makers and Program Executive Directors (PEOs) will explore topics such as Digital Transformation, Software Factories, Cyber Security and Small Business. The third day is reserved for Industry to schedule one-on-one meetings with PEO’s for further discussion. Throughout the conference, exclusive virtual exhibits will be available, and small businesses will be afforded the opportunity to build potential partnerships through discussion of near and future Air Force program requirements.

LCID 2021 is being held as a virtual event as we continue to adapt to the COVID-19 operating environment. Although disappointed by our inability to meet in person this year, my team has worked to make this a powerful and impactful event. I am excited to hear from our dynamic leaders and invite you to participate in the meaningful engagement that is sure to take place.
