15th EXPEDITIONARY MOBILITY TASK FORCE
Mission. The Fifteenth Expeditionary Mobility Task Force is one of two EMTFs assigned to the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command. Headquartered at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., its main mission is to provide a rapid, tailored, worldwide, air mobility response to combatant commanders’ requirements. The 15th EMTF reports to the 18th Air Force, which is headquartered at Scott Air Force Base, Ill.
The 15th EMTF extends existing AMC infrastructure, through both in-place employment and rapid forward deployment capabilities, and presents forces to warfighting unified commanders by focusing on meeting the nation’s global air mobility requirements. The 15th EMTF also employs mission-ready command and control, aerial port, and aircraft maintenance personnel, as well as airlift, air refueling, aeromedical evacuation and airfield opening planning, assessment, and execution expertise, to project and sustain combat forces worldwide.
On order, the EMTF commander may deploy as the Director of Mobility Forces (DIRMOBFOR), a Joint Task Force Commander, a Joint Forces Air Component Commander, or any number of roles to rapidly establish air mobility operations in support of contingency efforts, humanitarian operations, exercises and war games.
