The United States Air Force became an official, separate branch of the United States military on September 18, 1947. MicroPact is proud to support the mission of the USAF, on its birthday and every day.

An Expansive, and Expanding, Mission

Originally a part of the United States Army, the USAF became a separate branch of the armed forces in 1947. At that time, World War II had demonstrated the important role of aircraft in warfare. Since then, the USAF has grown in size and scope, as the technology and the threats against the United States have continued to evolve.

The vast, crucial, and ever-changing mission of the USAF is summed up on the Air Force website:

“The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace. Our rich history and our vision guide our Airmen as we pursue our mission with excellence and integrity to become leaders, innovators and warriors.”

Excellence and Integrity

To support the United States Air Force in their mission, on December, 2018, MicroPact announced that the USAF Security Forces had selected the entellitrak® platform as the basis of the Air Force Justice Information System (AFJIS).

AFJIS is a single platform to collect and manage all of the data associated with law enforcement and other police services at USAF bases around the world. It not only helps with investigations, it also tracks data regarding people in custody, and supports data analytics about criminal activity.

Over the last few months, USAF personnel, including over 260 patrolmen, investigators, and trainers, have gone through AFJIS system training conducted by MicroPact. Those who completed the courses are now considered “AFJIS Master Trainers” and will go on to train other USAF users of the system—expected to number close to 25,000 individuals. 

Leaders, Innovators, and Warriors

The AFJIS solution will leverage the entellitrak Data-First™ approach to comply with the federally-mandated Defense Incident-Based Reporting System (DIBRS), which details the reporting data elements needed to comply with federal criminal incident reporting. It will enable the USAF Security Forces to conduct criminal justice activities efficiently and effectively, helping the United States Air Force to stay focused on its mission. The United States Air Force may be turning 72 years old, but with its commitment to embracing new and innovative ideas, it is as fierce and vibrant as ever.
