Kessel Run (KR), a detachment of the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC), leverages industry best practices and products to rapidly deliver capabilities while posturing for future and potentially disruptive information technology (IT).
Kessel Run revolutionizes the way that the Air Force builds and acquires software to meet the needs of Airmen across the globe. Kessel Run embraces Agile principles, DevSecOps, and lean product management practices to continuously integrate and deliver software capabilities. KR embraces a culture of rapid feedback loops (e.g. build, measure, learn) and user-centered design managed by Government-led teams to rapidly develop, produce, and deploy software across the Air Operations Centers and other Air Force programs, while continuously iterating and improving upon those software applications. Kessel Run has rapidly expanded its personnel and scope in the last eight months. New external Air Force users are beginning to utilize our Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) Platform as a Service (PaaS) and our on-premise Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Kessel Run
continues to ramp up its number of product teams across the AirOps (Air Operations Centers) and WingOps (F-35s) product offices, as well as expand its platform operation, engineering, and security requirements. As such, additional KR Enterprise modular contracts need to be awarded to support Kessel Run’s rapid growth.
Kessel Run is pursuing a modernization effort which seeks to leverage the advantages of Cloud computing, Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and adoption of a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline in order to get capability out to the field more quickly. This process will meet all regulatory testing and cybersecurity requirements in order to establish a lean, user-centered approach that will ultimately redefine how programs within the Kessel Run portfolio deliver capability to the Air Force Warfighter. This effort has a strong focus on engagement with the end-user community to ensure we are rapidly meeting their highest priority needs. This effort is to acquire software engineers to transform legacy applications and new requirements as identified by the Government into cloud-native applications that will reside on a Platform as a Service (PaaS), as defined by the Government.
