The Air Force faced a monumental task in preparing to work with the Federal Aviation Administration on its Next Generation Air Transportation System.

Throughout this comprehensive overhaul of the national air traffic management system, widely known as NextGen, the FAA is requiring the Air Force and other agencies to make significant investments in new, coordinated infrastructure. The inter-agency collaboration needed to comply with these mandates involves the analysis of massive amounts of information across a wide variety of forms and artifacts, including many in unstructured formats.

To meet the challenge, officials at the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate searched for a partner and found Florida-based Securboration. With the backing of an Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award, Securboration was able to adapt newer technologies to handle the work.
