The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Program Office (JPO) needed to provide government employees better access to Joint Strike Fighter (F-35) development efforts. As a result of the DoD ‘Cloud First’ strategy, an SMX-led team was selected to build the infrastructure, pipelines, security posture, and environment. This program established the first joint cloud environment with government control and private business partners.
A viable product was delivered within just six months. Just as importantly, our solution enables them to support building multiple DevSecOps pipelines, which will sustain continuous ATO on the software that is built through them. This will include pipelines that enable flight system support by seven different government depots, along with major private companies that build and maintain the F-35, up to 40 small businesses that work on F-35 supply chain issues, and foreign nationals. This is possible because of the solid infrastructure security plan built by the SMX team for the new, modernized environment.
