Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin says it is close to completing a cloud pilot initiative that is intended to provide a hosting platform for the U.S. Air Force's portal and mission applications.

The company has been working under the Global Combat Support System ““ Air Force program to develop the hybrid cloud environment that will work with existing services, Lockheed Martin said Tuesday.

That cloud platform is intended to fulfill on-demand service requests by migrating mission applications in compliance with the Joint Information Environment program.

“Migrating to a cloud-based environment introduces on-demand service requests and enables the warfighter to bring the capability to the frontlines,” said Angela Heise, vice president of enterprise IT services at Lockheed’s IS&GS business.

The GCSS-AF cloud pilot is scheduled to complete in July 2014.

Lockheed and the Air Force intend for users access information from a centralized point of entry through the GCSS-AF-hosted Air Force Portal.
