Splice Machine Lands Air Force Contract to Modernize Mission Planning
Splice Machine, a scalable SQL database provider, has landed a Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research research grant from the Air Force to automate the assignment of resources to missions. The company's SQL platform will be morphed into a modernization solution, minimizing compute complexity and maximizing mission-objective effectiveness. Currently, the Air Force uses magnetic "puckboards" to schedule flight training and mission objectives, a time-consuming process that requires personnel to personally meet, Splice Machine said Tuesday. The Air Force's TRON team at the 15th Wing wrote a planning application to incorporate the old puckboard system into the Splice Machine database. Company CEO Monte Zweban, a former NASA employee, said he has personally seen the benefits of application modernization on the commercial side.
