Digital Transformation Office Seeks Solutions for Automating Digital Model Certification Process
The Department of the Air Force’s Digital Transformation Office is looking for technologies that can improve the ingestion, digestion and analysis of digital models in support of the U.S. Air Force Unified Certification Strategy, which aims to simplify the certification of airworthiness, cybersecurity and nuclear surety of systems and its digital architecture.
The Air Force is inviting small businesses to pitch their technologies capable of accelerating and automating the process. Eight companies will be chosen to participate in the program.
Currently, the certification process uses manual and semi-automated methods, which could cause delays as the number of Department of Defense programs employing digital models continues to increase, Catalyst Accelerator Ogden said.
The three-month accelerator, hosted by Catalyst Campus and sponsored by the DTO, will be launched on March 7, providing participating companies with the opportunity to connect with government and industry partners and promote their technologies. The event will conclude with a demonstration of the capabilities on May 24.
DTO was established in 2021 to manage the digital transformation efforts of the U.S. Air and Space Force.
In an interview with C4ISRNET early in 2022, DTO Chief Kyle Hurst said the office was identifying the needs of the services to shape a digital transformation road map. He also highlighted the importance of reliable and flexible funding mechanisms, foundational infrastructure and digital tools in modernizing systems.
