Air Force Acquisition Team Offers Recommendations to Improve Aircraft-GEOINT System Interface

1 min read

A team of U.S. Air Force acquisition staffers recommended measures for the military service to improve the coordination between its aircraft platforms and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency information systems.

The Advanced Tactical Acquisition Corps found an interface issue between Air Force and NGA platforms is partly due to a configuration data management deficiency, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center said Saturday.

“We developed a total of seven recommendations that improve the processes, tools, and resources for intelligence supportability in acquisition,” said Capt. Chris Bang, a member of ATAC-Team 12.

“Our desired end-goal is to allow acquisition leaders to make intel-informed decisions and deliver capabilities that provide our warfighters a tactical advantage.”

ATAC-Team 12 proposed recruiting more acquisition intelligence analysts to work at aircraft program offices and maintain a tracking database for geospatial systems.

The group also suggested codifying such positions into the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act and centralizing the GEOINT systems monitoring through a digital database.

Nine civilian and military employees make up the 12th cohort of ATAC, a three-month program that allows service personnel to identify possible approaches for addressing acquisition challenges.
