An early adopter of Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) in the mission planning enterprise, DCS performs Agile development and maintenance of multiple U.S. and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) products, rapid prototyping and rapid fielding. DCS forms integrated teams with the Government, to rapidly respond to the evolving operational environment.
Specifically, DCS supports the Mobility Air Forces (MAF) who provides Mission Planning Software development, integration, and sustainment for special mission Air Combat Command platforms, FMS Mobility platforms, and the development and integration of Air Mobility Command’s (AMC) Global Mobility (GM) platforms. In its current form, the 28-FTE Agile Global Mobility workforce actions prioritized U.S. and FMS backlogs for separate Agile Release Trains, guided by DCS Product Owners, Scrum Masters and our own SAFe 4.6 Program Consultant. DCS developed the initial and now succeeding GM unique planning components and Mission Planning Environments (MPE) providing specialty planning tools to meet unique AMC operational requirements. The goal for the GM MPE is to meet or exceed the legacy AMC mission planning capability provided by the portable flight planning software, the tanker airlift special mission aircraft/weapons/electronics and the consolidated airdrop tool.
Further, DCS also supports the Joint Warning and Reporting Network (JWARN) program of record. JWARN is a joint program that integrates CBRN data and facilitates sensor information into service Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems and platforms located in command and control (C2) centers. DCS, as the prime, applies SAFe practices to maintain and enhance the JWARN software deployed to all US military services.
