The company will develop advanced decision support services, information exchange and system interoperability. Its prototype solutions design will improve decision making in the command and control process and assist with risk reduction for the warfighter.
Accenture will use internet technology to shorten the time needed to develop new modeling programs. The resulting systems will provide the U.S. Air Force with improved information management systems that supply commanders with the data needed for advanced planning and decisions regarding battle management and war gaming.
“Accenture is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Air Force to help improve command and control for air, space and cyberspace operations, ” said Rich Ryan, Accenture’s Air Force account lead. “We look forward to providing cutting-edge research to better support airmen who are engaged in difficult and critical missions.”
The Air Force operations are based out of Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts. Work will be performed at Accenture’s locations in King of Prussia, Pa., Camden, N.J., and Joplin, Mo.
