Capt. Lohmeier has been leading the 460th Operation Support Squadron Block 10 training flight for several months. As the Space-Based Infrared System program undergoes an $850 million system upgrade, Lohmeier is charged with ensuring that the operations group crews are trained and ready for the transition. He has successfully led his team to develop products, deliver training and accept the new Standardized Space Trainer. He has shown great aptitude while coordinating with the Space and Missile Systems Center Program Office and the prime contractor to juggle a dynamic training schedule and make improvements to the SST. He is also been instrumental in planning the integration of SBIRS Initial Qualification Training that will be transferred from Air Education and Training Command to the 460th Space Wing this fall. The 460th OSS is currently conducting five concurrent training classes, providing high-quality training to the space operators that will ensure the continued success of the no-fail 460th SW mission all under the watch of Lohmeier.
