Six Degree of Kevin Beacon – Virtual Design Sprint

Six Degrees of Kevin Beacon
Virtual Design Sprint

6-18 May 2020

Overview

AF CyberWorx facilitated a three-session virtual design sprint 6-18 May 2020 with eight government personnel and five industry representatives. Users, stakeholders, and industry experts explored possibilities for a new consolidated mission management tool for AFRCC to replace the current, manual Excel product.

AF CyberWorx teamed with AFRCC stakeholders and a company named Geosite to develop wireframes for a new mission management tool to automate manual processes, simplify beacon management, and facilitate 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?”
