The U.S. Air Force has added Lockheed Martin to Platform One, a software development program that works to develop and deliver new software applications for defense missions, the company reported on Monday. 

Platform One manages Air Force software factories and provides DevSecOps managed services with collaboration tools, cybersecurity tools, open source code and artifact repositories, development tools, and DevSecOps as a Service. 

“It’s clear from their actions that Lockheed Martin is embracing DevSecOps and is committed to advancing Platform One capabilities,” said Nic Chaillan, the Air Force’s chief software officer

The Department of Defense’s (DOD) Platform One is a standardized and mandated DevSecOps Infrastructure program that has been leveraged for software development. The platform has enabled faster software development and deployment with continuous updates to warfighters.

“Collaboration with industry is key to the success of Platform One and other advanced cloud and software efforts, and we look forward to working with the Defense Industrial Base to improve the way we deliver fast, secure and high-quality code to warfighters,” Chaillan added. 

Lockheed Martin was recently awarded a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) for Platform One Software DevSecOps Services to support DevSecOps engineering, software development, cybersecurity, operations and IT support. The award has strengthened the company’s work with the Platform One team. 

The Platform One BOA can also be used for task orders for U.S. Cyber Command, including Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture DevSecOps development critical to multiple programs such as Joint Cyber Command and Control. 

“Platform One is a truly innovative approach that is propelling the DoD’s DevSecOps evolution, and the collaboration with industry has helped us build infrastructure and capabilities that are well-aligned to the DoD’s vision,” said Yvonne Hodge, senior vice president of Enterprise Business Transformation at Lockheed Martin.
