How the United States Space Force modernized mission assurance and increased launch tempo with Atlassian
The U.S. Space Force is a military service that organizes, trains, and equips space forces in order to protect U.S. and allied interests in space and to provide space capabilities to the joint force. USSF responsibilities will include developing Guardians, acquiring military space systems, maturing the military doctrine for space power, and organizing space forces to present to our Combatant Commands.
The U.S. Space Force is embracing modernization and new ways of working to elevate mission success. Since their establishment in 2019, the USSF’s custom Launch Issue Tracker and Launch Verification Database platforms were reaching end of life.
One squadron collaborated with government-verified Solution Partners Contegix and Silicon Mountain Technologies (SMT) to build an award-winning, highly tailored solution using Jira Software, Jira Service Management, and Confluence. Working together, the teams went from concept to launch in under six months.
Leveraging existing software packages and iterative design, the team reduced development time and costs. More importantly, this enabled the USSF to realize efficiencies immediately.
