Mission Focus:

The Naval Air Logistics Office (NALO) currently receives air lift requests via PDFs, emails and phone calls. NALO personnel manually validate the lift request details and manually match these lift requests to available aircraft based on complex business rules to create missions. Due to the manual nature of the process, an enormous amount of time is wasted going back and forth on lift requests and missions. Additionally, many lifts fly empty because the schedule cannot be optimized beyond human calculation.

NTC is developing a full stack application to support the requesters, NALO operators, and the squadrons. The application is built on a microservices architecture with a mobile optimized user interface. It leverages modern technology including Kubernetes based deployments, React JS, Java, Quarkus, MongoDB and Kafka.
