lead mobility wing
An Air Mobility Command unit designated to provide an on-call 32member cross-functional initial response team (IRT) for short-notice deployment in response to humanitarian crises. When requested by a supported geographic combatant commander, this IRT arrives at an airfield in the disaster area to provide mobility expertise and leadership, assess the requirements for follow-on relief forces, and establish a reception base to serve as a conduit for relief supplies or the repatriation of noncombatants. The IRT is attached to the joint task force established by the supported geographic combatant commander. Also called LMW. See also Air Mobility Command; mobility; wing.
