Manich Takes Deputy Position at AIR 1.0
A longtime NAVAIR professional with deep roots in the logistician community was recently named as the new deputy assistant commander for Acquisition, or AIR-1.0.
Anthony Manich, who joined AIR-1.0 on June 5, was previously assigned as the principal deputy program manager for the Precision Strike Weapons Program Office (PMA-201), where he helped incorporate the first network-enabled weapons technology into the joint standoff weapon, Harpoon and small-diameter bomb weapons.
The Acquisition organization manages six programs: Communications (PMW/A-170); Aircrew Systems (PMA-202); Naval Aviation Training Systems (PMA-205); Air Combat Electronics (PMA-209); H-46 Sea Knight (PMA-226); and Aviation Support Equipment (PMA-260).
Additionally, AIR-1.0 leads the command-wide NAVAIR Acquisition/Program Management Competency, overseeing approximately 1,200 civilian and military personnel. Those competencies, or professional communities, include Acquisition Policy and Process; Aviation/Ship Integration; Program Management Personnel and Support (AIR-1.3); International Programs; Acquisition Force Management; and Environmental Programs.
