Air Force Academy Students Introduce Cyber Issue Tracker Software

blankA group of Air Force Academy cadets have developed a new software that can keep track of cyber issues for Air Force Space Command mobile and online applications with the use of a chat room, user ratings and social media features, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported Thursday.

Wayne Heilman writes an AFA design class developed the CyberWorx Responsive Dashboard to feature a chat room, incident response reporting system, glossary of acronyms and an option to click on any part of the map for a detailed view.

The class utilized a “design thinking” concept to determine how to tackle specific issues and how to develop a system that can address such challenges as opposed to having an engineer fix technical problems.

Lt. Col. Michael Chiaramonte, an Air Force Academy associate professor of computer science, told the Gazette another class will start in January which will cover how to rewrite Air Force policies used in cyber personnel command and control systems.
