The Advanced Airlift Tactics Training Center (AATTC) is hosting itsĀ 30th Tactics and Intelligence Symposium January 23-26, 2011 at Rosecrans Air National Guard Base, St. Joseph, Mo.

The theme is "EYES to the Future", with presentations focusing on improving mobility tactics, defensive systems, and intelligence integration in the combat environment.

As in the past, this event promotes finding solutions to today's tactical challenges by providing participants the opportunity to learn from subject matter experts, view innovative products from vendors, and network with fellow mobility professionals. Approximately 300 participants are anticipated.

Historically, most military personnel have come from the C-130 and C-17 communities; however, recent attendance has dramatically increased from the C-5, C-26, KC-10, and KC-135 communities.

Unique to this year's event will be an emphasis on information sharing with coalition partners Australia, New Zealand Canada, and United Kingdom.
