    Sad News:

    ICBM Pioneer Lt Gen (Retired) Al Casey passed away in his sleep on 10 June.  Lt Gen Casey was the rare AF officer who came up* through the ranks to head the ICBM program.  Lt Gen Casey began his AF(BMO) career as AF Project Manager for the Minuteman Stage III , immersed himself in solid propulsion system fundamentals and embraced  the systems engineering concepts put in place a decade earlier by Bernard Schriever to lead the motor development to an “on schedule” IOC for MMIII .  His success as a hands-on manager of a formidable engineering challenge was duly noted and, “ the rest is history”.   His path to the top of the ICBM program ( Minuteman Eng Director->Deputy for Minuteman->Deputy for MX ->Peacekeeper Prog Director->commander AF Ballistic Missile Office).  Consequently, he also was the military lead for OSD of the tri-service advanced re-entry systems program and its reentry systems launch program for all DARPA and services advanced development ballistic missile technology flight experiments.  The advanced basing programs: e.g., Deep Underground, et al,  as well as advanced missile technology efforts and other special projects for OSD were part of the BMO portfolio.

    Gen Casey will be forever remembered in DoD for accurately citing that AF(BMO) delivered programs which “ met or exceeded requirements, on or ahead of schedule, and were within budget.
