Accenture to Support US Air Force Base Defense System
Accenture Federal Services is one of a group of companies awarded a $900-million contract supporting the US Air Force Base Defense System.
The defense system comprises digital capabilities to ensure military security against emerging threats.
As part of the 10-year agreement, the companies will provide research and development, rapid prototyping, and associated digital engineering solutions to counter adversary assets ranging from small unmanned systems to hypersonic missiles.
Supporting US Air Force Threat Mitigation
According to Accenture, the contract will include technologies previously deployed for the US Department of Defense.
Such systems include the firm’s Ageon ISR web-based real-time mission control and forensic analysis application for situational awareness and intelligence operations.
Another is the PICARD, a platform translating data from sensors, adapters, and other legacy systems into a common language.
Accenture will also develop synthetic environments for the system using virtual reality.
“We look forward to helping the Air Force Base Defense System test innovative, mission-critical ways of using intelligence data collected from existing sensors and cameras,” Accenture Federal Services Managing Director Stephen Carlon stated.
“We’re excited to build upon our longstanding partnership with the US Air Force to advance its ability to make highly effective threat mitigation decisions.”
