BLU-111 Engineering Change Proposal (From Lab to Warfighter in 14 Weeks)

In response to warfighter demands, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) teamed to design a new penetrating weapon to defeat challenging hardened targets in the field. The design transitioned rapidly from concept to successful test in 14 weeks with fielding planned in 2020, highlighting the importance of partnerships to provide quick-reaction solutions.
