Air Force Knowledge Services

The US Air Force has more than 327,000 active personnel and nearly 5,600 aircraft, as well as missiles and satellites around the globe.

“Before Air Force Knowledge Services, there wasn’t visibility on a timely basis. It might have taken weeks or months to extract that information manually out of all the stove-piped transaction systems.”
