MEMORANDUM FOR DISTRIBUTION C
MAJCOMs/FOAs/DRUs
FROM: HQ AF/A4
1030 Air Force Pentagon
Washington, DC 20330
SUBJECT: Air Force Guidance Memorandum to AFI 21-201, Munitions Management
By Order of the Secretary of the Air Force, this Guidance Memorandum immediately
implements changes to AFI 21-201, Munitions Management, 3 Jun 2015. Compliance with this
memorandum is mandatory. To the extent its directions are inconsistent with other Air Force
publications, the information herein prevails, in accordance with AFI 33-360, Publications and
Forms Management. This Guidance Memorandum supersedes AFI21-20_AFGM2016-01 dated
19 Oct 2016.
This Guidance Memorandum incorporates several changes regarding proper
identification, cross-referencing, and validation of Combat Ammunition System (CAS)-managed
Nuclear Weapons Related Materials (NWRM) during packaging operations, and incorporates
new Maintenance Cyber Discipline policy. In advance of a rewrite of AFI 21-201, the following
items are updated to provide guidance changes that are effective immediately.
(Add) 1.8. Maintenance Cyber Discipline
(Add) 1.8.1. For the purpose of this AFI, Electronic Tools (eTools) are portable electronic devices
(e.g. laptop computer, hand held device, to include the Munitions Integrated Tablet (MIT) and
other associated AIT devices) that are certified to inter-operate on Air Force (AF) networks, are
mission critical because they are the primary method for viewing electronic technical publications,
and are used to exchange data with approved Maintenance Information Systems (MIS) and
Accountable Property System(s) of Record (APSR) at the point of use. Note: eTools do not
include electronic devices and test equipment issued and configuration managed by a system
Program Manager (PM). Certain munitions field test sets, however, send and/or receive data either
directly or indirectly through network systems and are also susceptible to the effects of poor cyber
discipline.
(Add) 1.8.1.1. Improper procurement of eTools, and improper sustainment and use of eTools and
field test sets pose a significant cyber risk to AF systems. Protocols have been identified as a
critical element in mitigating emerging cyber threats. The guidance below establishes
requirements for developing and implementing daily/periodic cyber mitigation processes. The
intent is to reduce cyber risk and assigns responsibilities that provide the best possible opportunity
for success for achieving mission assurance in cyber threat environments.

(Add) 1.8.2. Variations in eTools functionality across AF weapon systems must be approved by
the applicable system Program Manager (PM) IAW AFI 63-101/20-101, Integrated Life Cycle
Management. This is done to ensure the program’s product support strategy identifies and supports
interrelationships and integration with programs and processes both inside and outside the
program’s current Program Executive Officer (PEO) portfolio. Additionally, this ensures the
program’s product support strategy aligns to Air Force enterprise priorities.
(Add) 1.8.3. MAJCOMs/ANG will develop and implement guidance that ensures eTools
standardization, management, and configuration control IAW 17-series publications. eTools are
procured IAW AFI 63-138, Acquisition of Services, and sustained IAW AFI 63-101/20-101.
(Add) 1.8.4. MAJCOMs/ANG will coordinate with their Chief Information Officer (CIO)/A6 or
equivalent to publish eTool sustainment and support guidance. In addition, MAJCOMs will
validate functional Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC) specific support is adequately allocated to
ensure assigned units remain compliant with requirements directed in AFI 17-100, Air Force
Information Technology (IT) Service Management, AFI 17-120, Management of Cyberspace
Support Activities, AFMAN 17-1201, User Responsibilities and Guidance for Information
Systems, AFMAN 17-1203, Information Technology (IT) Asset Management (ITAM), AFMAN
17-1301, Computer Security (COMPUSEC), and AFMAN 17-1302-O, Communications Security
(COMSEC) Operations.
(Add) 1.8.5. MAJCOMs/ANG will provide standardized guidance on the use, storage, content
update, security and cyber hygiene processes necessary to support the approved use of all assigned
eTool devices. When required, this guidance will also supplement and enforce cyber hygiene
processes for field test set operations.
(Add) 1.8.6. MAJCOMs/ANG, in coordination with their supporting Lead Commands, will
develop and implement assigned Mission Design Series (MDS) specific cyber threat mitigation
strategies. These strategies must be directly linked to supporting publication and technical order
references, and monitored to ensure the most current cyber threat mitigation capabilities are
sustained in the deployed or in-garrison Mission Generation environments. MAJCOMs/ANG will
ensure, as a minimum, the processes include contingency eTool comm-out/cyber-out bare base
operating procedures.
(Add) 1.8.7. Unit Commanders will ensure eTools are used for official and authorized purposes
only, IAW 17-series publications and locally developed procedures as needed. (T-1).
(Add) 1.8.8. Assigned eTool users will not install, download or access any unauthorized files or
software on any eTool or munitions field test set. (T-1).
(Add) 1.8.9. Users will not use, access or insert unauthorized external media devices to any eTool
or munitions field test set. (T-1).
(Add) 1.8.10. Unit Commanders will establish procedures that prohibit the introduction of
government or personal cellular/personal communications systems and/or radio frequency (RF),
infrared (IR) wireless devices, or other devices such as cell phones, tablets or any devices that have
photographic or audio recording capabilities into areas (e.g., rooms, offices, etc.) where classified
information is stored processed or discussed IAW AFMAN 17-1301.
(Add) 1.8.10.1. Coordinate waiver requests with the applicable MAJCOM/ANG

(Add) 1.8.10.1.1. Ensure adherence to TEMPEST requirements IAW DoDD 8100.02, Use of
Commercial Wireless Devices, Services, and Technologies in the Department of Defense (DoD)
Global Information Grid (GIG).
(Add) 1.8.10.1.2. Obtain written approval from both the AF Certified TEMPEST Technical
Authority (CTTA) IAW AFI 16-1404, Air Force Information Security Program, and National
Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication (NIST SP) 800-53A Revision 4,
Assessing Security and Privacy Controls in Federal Information Systems and Organizations:
Building Effective Security Assessment Plans; and the Enterprise Authorizing Official (AO) IAW
AFI 31-101, AFMAN 17-1301 & AFMAN 17-1305 (when published).
(Add) 1.8.11. Maintenance Group Commanders or equivalents with approved waivers will
coordinate with the Communication Squadron Cyber Security Liaison and/or Information System
Security Managers to identify specific requirements and publish local guidance on restrictions of
the use of Portable Electronic Devices (PED) in classified processing areas. (T-1).
(Add) 1.8.12. Munitions Supervision will ensure that users routinely, and whenever malware is
suspected, run all required scans to validate the content integrity of eTools, electronic/cyber
devices, test/support equipment and components as part of the unit cyber hygiene mitigation
protocol IAW MDS/equipment and item TOs. (T-1).
(Add) 2.7.1.2.1. Master Training Plans must include annual Maintenance Cyber Discipline
training if not administered through the MXG maintenance training program or other ancillary
training programs.
(Replace) 4.5.4. Properly tag and pack munitions. (T-1). See paragraph 3.24.3, paragraph
5.3.2.4, and paragraph 7.1.6.4 for specific NWRM packing and marking requirements.
(Replace) 5.3.2.4. Tag, mark, and package munitions assets IAW MIL-STD-129 and TO 11A1-10. See paragraph 3.24.3 and paragraph 7.1.6.4 for specific NWRM packing and marking
