Google and Airforce to join hands on Cloud-Based Aircraft Maintenance Ecosystem

Google Cloud and the U.S. Air Force’s Rapid Sustainment Office have decided to jointly develop a technology platform that will utilize a company-built computing ecosystem to support aviation sustainment operations at the service division.

According to the joint announcement on Friday, the partnership aims to integrate Google’s Apigee application programming and interface management tool and Anthos managed application technology into the maintenance ecosystem of the aircraft as part of Project Lighthouse.

The open, agile, flexible, and scalable platform will also provide seamless integration for the network of technology providers of the Air Force, including predictive maintenance applications to managing robotics.

As explained by Nathan Parker, the deputy program executive officer at RSO, “Our collaboration with Google Cloud will accelerate our way to implement, integrate, and scale technologies for the Air Force.”

Further, Mike Daniels, the vice president for the global public sector at Google Cloud, added, “Appreciations for Project Lighthouse. Now, more people are going to have the tools and technologies to do their jobs faster, and we’re dedicated to playing a vital role in this effort.”

The Air Force has a plan to prototype, validate and assess the scalability of the ecosystem of Project Lighthouse within its technology platform before deployment.
