“It’s harder, in this portfolio, to visualize what we’re giving to the warfighter than some of the other three PEO’s I’ve had the privilege to lead,” said Brig. Gen. Michael Schmidt. “But make no mistake, it doesn’t matter if you have the coolest B-21 or F-35 in the air, it won’t do any good for you without the awareness generated by networks we manage here.”

Making BACN a program of record is a way to formalize requirements and set up a predictable budget. The change happened officially March 30.

He was a program manager at Hanscom in the formerly known Electronic Systems Division from 1984-1989.
