Across the Air Force, changes to equipment, policies and procedures have been made to save money, to save time and to save lives. From the highest levels, Airmen across the service are being encouraged to innovate. It’s this innovation that will deliver lethality to outpace adversaries, says Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein, and maintain our position as the world’s strongest, most powerful military.
One such innovation came in response to a recognized potential issue within the B-2 Spirit – the world’s most strategic aircraft and the heart of the stealth mission here at Whiteman.
A four-switch panel called the airframe mounted accessory drive, or AMAD, sits on the left side of the B-2’s two-person cockpit. The AMAD switches control the connection of the engines to the hydraulic and generator power of the aircraft.
