US Air Force KRADOS Application Slated for US Indo-Pacific Command Deployment
The U.S. Air Force’s Kessel Run is preparing to scale its Kessel Run All-Domain Operations Suite to support multi-domain operations for the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command.
KRADOS is a software application designed to replace the Theater Battle Management Core System. It contains several tools, including the Jigsaw Tanker Planning Tool, which streamlines and optimizes airborne refueling operations, and the Triton, designed to consolidate information to create air-tasking orders.
Officials did not disclose which air operations centers would receive KRADOS or when the INDOPACOM integration would begin, DefenseScoop reported Thursday.
KRADOS was first fielded in 2021 with the 609th Air Operations Center, located at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. According to Col. Rich Lopez, senior materiel leader at Kessel Run, KRADOS replaced legacy systems in November 2022 at Al Udeid and was since used in real operations.
According to Kessel Run, KRADOS will allow warfighters to move faster and allow commanders to allocate manpower more effectively. Its common data streams, supported by hybrid cloud infrastructure, work together to create an image of the battlespace and develops plans to help leaders deploy air assets effectively and de-conflict the airspace.
