Air Force Space Command’s Automation Strategy Puts Focus on Leveraging Data

Jeff Brody

Mark Brady, chief data officer of the U.S. Air Force Space Command, has said that the organization established a strategy for leveraging data to address everyday challenges, Federal News Network reported Tuesday.

Brady told the publication that the command intends to collate large amounts of information to drive artificial intelligence and machine learning efforts while also supporting interoperability between systems. In addition, AFSPC plans to establish a “super system” that consolidates all of the command’s systems and deploy a “data catalog” approach to inform the development of next-generation technologies.

“You need a place where people can access data in some uniform, well-defined fashion rather than doing it ad hoc,” Brady said. “Then you need to produce policies for new and existing data systems to produce data that is more efficient.”
