TYSONS, Va., - Monkton of Tysons, Va., announced it has deployed the first mobile app in the U.S. Air Force (USAF) that enables maintainers to perform their work directly on the flight line with mobile devices.

The app is NIAP compliant and FIPS 140-2 validated. It also has in-depth ID management, and is DISA purebred ready and has derived credentials, an active directory, as well as OAuth2 and JWT integration.

"This is a huge win for our Department of Defense, aligning directly with the mandate of increasing air readiness," commented Harold Smith III, CEO and co-founder of Monkton, Inc. He continued, "the project started off on the 5-yard line, by leveraging Rebar by Monkton and AWS GovCloud (US), we were ultimately able to kick off and enter User Acceptance Testing in just over three months. There is no one else that can deliver secure, compliant, mission-related capabilities in this time."

"Amazon Web Services was thrilled to be part of this project. BRICE enables the USAF maintainer community to consume and generate data when they need and where they need it," adds Dave Levy, VP of AWS' US Government business.
