For over a century, the U.S. Air Force has defended this country in the air, space and cyberspace. The programs led by the Air Force are extensive, ranging from pilot training to cryptologic language analysis to aerospace propulsion. Two of the Air Force’s 10 major commands are Air Education and Training Command and Air Combat Command, whose responsibilities include education and training for all Airmen and equipping combat-ready forces for rapid deployment.
As the Air Force continues to make tremendous strides to advance defense technology in air and space, they have decided to work with Box to power secure collaboration and critical processes for the Air Education and Training Command and Air Combat Command.
As part of the U.S Air Force technology transformation initiatives, the team will use Box to:
- Create a single source for the electronic flight bag for flight essentials, including technical manuals, checklists, and courseware updates
- Accommodate sharing of large file sizes for seamless distribution of 360° videos and AR/VR training videos
- Launch workflows via Box Relay to reduce time to track suspense items, awards, and personnel performance reviews
- Support secure authenticated access to content via OAuth
With Box, the Air Force will be able to focus their energy on what matters most and modernize mission-critical processes. “We are incredibly excited to power the Air Force in its pursuit to educate, train and empower the next generation of Airmen,” said Sonny Hashmi, Managing Director of Global Public Sector at Box. “The organization leads as an example of how our public sector can digitally transform workplace practices to power secure collaboration and real-time access to information in the field. We are proud to work with the Air Force and support its mission in defending all Americans.”
Box is FedRAMP compliant and received Department of Defense SRG Impact Level 4 Authorization by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). With this partnership, the Air Force joins leading organizations that have moved to Box to power new ways of working, including the USDA Forest Service and Farm Production and Conservation, Food and Drug Administration, Department of Justice, and the District of Columbia Government.
