AFLCMC/EZF develops, documents, maintains, and deploys, processes in all aspects of flight system engineering, airworthiness certification criteria and aircraft, propulsion, and mechanical systems integrity programs. AFLCMC/EZF interfaces with AFLCMC organizations, AF labs, government agencies, industry and academia to support technology transition for USAF systems to meet the evolving needs of the warfighter.


MISSION: The Systems Engineering Division provides systems engineering leadership and technical direction in the areas of: systems design and integration; manufacturing, quality and industrial engineering; airworthiness; weapons integration; and configuration, and data management to the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center and other organizations. Develops, deploys, and maintains a technical workforce and processes to assure weapon systems are fully integrated, manufactured, sustained, configuration managed and operationally safe, suitable and effective throughout their life cycle. Executes AFPD 62-6, USAF Airworthiness, through standardized processes, qualified personnel and verified tools in the issuance of flight authorizations. Exploits emerging technologies through interfaces with AFMC labs, other government agencies, universities, and industry. Responsible for force development of the engineering work force in the designated areas of responsibility.


MISSION: Leading the USAF to ensure that air systems can safely attain, sustain, and complete flight.


The Armament Engineering Division provides weapons systems engineering leadership and technical support to program offices to design, develop, manufacture, integrate, test, and deploy armament systems. The division supports the definition and maintenance of technical processes, identifies current and future armament technical needs, and supports armament developments to satisfy user needs. The division ensures application of disciplined technical processes, such as PIT Assessment and Authorization processes, to assure our warfighter understands cybersecurity risks associated with the weapon systems. The division is responsible for force development of the engineering work force in the designated areas of responsibility; maintains and makes available, the Digital Engineering Acquisition Tech Hub for Simulation, Training, Analysis & Research (DEATHSTAR) to support engineering analyses and initiatives; and operates the Engineering and Data Service Center (EDSC) to provide engineering data to support activities that develop, acquire, maintain and support assigned aircraft and weapon systems, to include Research, Development and Test and Evaluation.
