The Natural Disaster Recovery Program Management Office has worked with AFWERX over the past two years to innovate and incorporate new technologies into flightline operations. Recently, leaders from industry, academia and the federal government gathered at the AFWERX Innovation Hub in Las Vegas, Nevada, to review technologies that will be a part of the Flightline of the Future. This effort is a sequel to last year’s Base of the Future Challenge.
Rebuild Vision + Strategy
The Installation of the Future represents an evolution toward a more resilient, ready and lethal Air Force. The Tyndall PMO is creating a stronger, more efficient and innovative 21st century base to serve as the new standard for DoD installations.
IotF is fueled by innovation, leveraging novel technology to increase cybersecurity and perimeter defense, enhance base safety and equip Airmen to execute the missions of today and tomorrow. The PMO is pioneering the Installation Resilience Operations Center, a game-changing concept that can centrally collect, share, integrate and analyze data the Air Force can use to optimize facility operations.
The decisions made throughout the Tyndall rebuild are blazing the trail for future installations that will follow in their footsteps. These decisions are precedent-setting across the Armed Forces. IotF is developing a Digital Twin: a virtual representation of the physical world that provides real-time information and analytics to reduce maintenance downtime and increase mission efficiency.
