The Air Force has presented its Modeling and Simulation Moody Suter Lifetime Achievement Award to Jacqueline Henningsen, the director for studies and analyses, assessments, and lessons learned. Henningsen has spent 20 years on modeling and simulation work within the Air Force and DOD, reports Capt. Ulric Adams Jr. Among her accomplishments: using modeling and simulation to improve logistics processes during Operation Desert Storm; helping establish the Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation; providing critical acquisition data for fielding and life cycle support for the F-22A. She is the second person to receive the award. (Why Moody Suter? Read “Red Flag.”)
