Six Degrees of Kevin Beacon
Virtual Design Sprint

6-18 May 2020

Summary:

AF CyberWorx facilitated a three-session virtual design sprint with eight government personnel and five industry specialists. The mix of users, stakeholders, and industry experts explored the requirements for a new consolidated mission management tool for AFRCC to replace the current manually-intensive spreadsheet products.

AF CyberWorx UX designers worked with stakeholders at AFRCC and Geosite to develop wireframes for a new cloud-based mission management tool to automate data processing, simplify alert management, and allow quicker response to civil search and rescue events.

Problem Statement:

How might we improve emergency beacon signal assessment, SAR mission support, incident management, and continuity of operations for Senior Controllers and SAR controllers at the AFRCC?
