Data Analytics App Helps Improve Tinker AFB Gate Monitoring

The 72nd Air Base Wing Security Forces Squadron is using a new data analytics tool to facilitate faster monitoring at the three Tinker Air Force Base gates. 

According to the Air Force Materiel Command, the Department of the Air Force Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office developed the web browser used in the Tinker Gate App for the daily monitoring of nearly 30,000 personnel and 16,000 vehicles entering the Air Force base, which is Oklahoma’s largest single-site employer. The app helps the squadron predict gate traffic, with data inputs from any Tinker AFB gate, the AFMC said Thursday.

Tinker AFB is the first U.S. Air Force base to monitor its gates through data analytics, a proof of concept on a continuing calibration process, the command noted. It added that features still to be added include app capabilities for automatic traffic data loading and predicting potentially troublesome days in the following week. 

Lt. Col. Ronnie Synakowski, 72nd Mission Support Group deputy commander, expressed the Air Force Security Center’s anticipation of the app reaching its full operation capability and the potential for other bases to use it. 

Tinker AFB hosts one of the three AFMC software engineering groups that the command plans to merge into a single unit within the Air Force Sustainment Center to streamline processes and software delivery while ensuring agility.
