Evolving Air Force Intelligence with Agile Techniques
Software Engineering Institute
In the past decade, the U.S. Air Force has built up great capability with the Distributed Common Ground System (AF DCGS), the Air Force’s primary weapon system for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, planning, direction, collection, processing, exploitation, analysis, and dissemination. AF DCGS employs a global communications architecture that connects multiple intelligence platforms and sensors. In this podcast, Harry Levinson discusses the SEI’s work with the Air Force to further evolve the AF DCGS system using Agile techniques working in incremental, iterative approaches to deliver more frequent, more manageable deliveries of capability.
