US Air Force Tasks Accenture Federal Services With Modernizing Sustainment Center Operations

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Accenture Federal Services a potential five-year, $25 million prime contract to modernize operations at the Air Force Sustainment Center, including air logistics complexes in Georgia, Oklahoma and Utah.

Bill Marion, managing director and Air Force client executive at Accenture Federal Services, explained that AFSC is responsible for providing aircraft depot maintenance, supply chain management and operations support.

The company is tasked with building an industrial internet of things platform for the AFSC Technology Hosting Environment for NextGen Automation program. Its approach is expected to integrate cloud and edge computing technology.

According to Marion, Accenture will introduce connected devices and operational technology cyber capabilities to enhance analytics and manufacturing at AFSC. Sensors will collect OT data and transport it onto the IIoT platform for monitoring with real-time dashboard capabilities, Accenture said.

Through ATHENA, the Air Force aims to establish a digital depot, a streamlined maintenance facility equipped with smart technology to save time and costs
