The contractor built new DevSecOps pipelines for Rogue Blue software factory in Nebraska.
As more components across the Defense Department look to agile software development to modernize, Lockheed Martin announced it has established 12 pipelines for an Air Force software factory supporting U.S. Strategic Command.
Lockheed worked with the Air Force Lifecycle Management Center in Nebraska to establish the Rogue Blue software factory, and its cloud-based environment for DevSecOps is shortening software delivery timelines from “six months to two weeks,” according to a May 11 press release. Rogue Blue supports the nuclear-focused Global Strike and Product Support contract, which was extended to last through 2022 for an additional $20 million.
“By establishing the new DevSecOps pipelines for GSPS application, Lockheed Martin supported the completion of 120 sustainment spring deliveries to field the Strike Planning Aid 2.0 system,” Lisa Owens, AFLCMC program manager, said in the press release.
Rogue Blue produces mission planning and command and control applications, according to the release. Strike Planning Aid 2.0 replaces USSTRATCOM’s conventional SPA weaponeering system.
“We used a novel microservice-patterned component architecture to break new ground on the use of containers at USSTRATCOM,” Colleen Saint, Lockheed Martin GSPS program manager, said in the release. “This expanded the capability of the system to ensure it would provide needed legacy capability while complying with the newest technical and cybersecurity standards.”
Kessel Run, another Air Force software factory, recently announced its own command and control capability suite is coming online as it looks to phase out the legacy Theater Battle Management Core System.
