Boeing subsidiary Tapestry Solutions has been awarded a 5-year Air Force recompete contract to sustain and modernize the Global Decision Support System, or GDSS – the principal command and control software platform.
The platform supports global Air Mobility Command missions, helping aircrews successfully plan and execute core missions from aerial refueling to strategic airlift. It provides a common operational picture for AMC and mission partners on a fully integrated platform.
“We are honored to continue as AMC’s trusted partner on their cornerstone C2 program,” said Debbie Churchill, vice president, mission products and services at Tapestry Solutions. “We look forward to providing GDSS with additional capability to enable AMC to execute their critical mission more effectively and efficiently.”
A part of Boeing Global Services, Tapestry Solutions has supported the development, sustainment and enhancement of GDSS since 1992. Under the new contract, GDSS will migrate to a cloud-hosted, DevOps environment while delivering uninterrupted services. In addition, next-generation software applications will be integrated with GDSS, capitalizing on the benefits of agile development and service-oriented architecture.
GDSS enables Mobility Air Forces to rapidly move personnel and equipment anywhere in the world within hours, and to sustain troop support or relief operations as long as needed.
