The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has selected Zenoss software-defined IT operations platform for the newly designed Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) architecture programme.

DCGS, or the AN / GSQ-272 Sentinel weapon system, is the primary intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) analysis tool that collects, processes, analyses and disseminates data collected by sensors on-board the USAF’s ISR platforms.

To this end, a five-year contract has been awarded to the company to deliver its open architecture platform to allow the DCGS to adapt its technology stacks to comply with changing IT environment requirements.

The extensible and scalable Zenoss platform is said to be designed to provide secure federal agencies and public sector organisations with complete visibility into the cloud, virtual and physical environments.

The platform helps support continuous mission readiness by providing a common operating picture, increased situational awareness, and actionable intelligence and decision support.

“We’ll continue to deliver results for the airforce and provide the highest levels of communication and coordination in support of its missions.”

The contract expands the existing Zenoss footprint within the organisation, augmenting a 2016 multisite, multiyear software contract to provide software and services for the DCGS.

Zenoss chairman and CEO Greg Stock said: “We are proud to partner with the US Air Force to protect the interests of the United States and its citizens.

“Zenoss is helping to ensure that the airforce can protect us 24/7/365.

“In this environment, system outages are not an option. Through our software-defined IT operations capabilities, we’ll continue to deliver results for the airforce and provide the highest levels of communication and coordination in support of its missions.”

Installation work under the contract will be carried out by federal partner Intelligent Waves at each airforce site.
