The U.S. Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) has selected software company Box, Inc. to power secure cloud content management and collaboration.
Tasked with modernizing its technology infrastructure to become paperless and digital-first, AFRC leadership purchased Box to help create a single source for the electronic flight bag, which will include technical manuals, checklists, flight map updates and other essentials.
The collaboration will also provide AFRC leadership with access to the most up to date electronic publications, even when they are not on a military installation or connected to the Air Force network.
The move will also enable airmen, government civilians and contractors to collaborate and share materials using Box as the central content Cloud.
“We are excited to power the Air Force Reserve Command’s mission critical electronic flight publication system,” said Aaron Levie, CEO and co-founder of Box.
“Their investment in a cloud strategy, including partnerships with companies such as Box, is poised to help the agency build digital experiences and will fundamentally change the ability of AF Reservists to stay connected and perform their duties. We are proud to work with the Air Force Reserve Command and support its critically important mission.”
Box is FedRAMP compliant and received Department of Defense SRG Impact Level 4 Authorization by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The AFRC now joins leading organizations that have moved to Box to power new ways of working, including NASA, the USDA Forest Service and Farm Production and Conservation, Food and Drug Administration, Department of Justice, and the District of Columbia Government.
