Lockheed Martin and Red Hat have produced an open source architecture in efforts to accelerate the development and delivery of software-based applications for the U.S. Air Force's F-22 Raptor jets.

The partnership based the architecture on the OpenShift Container Platform and helped the fighter jet manufacturer implement Agile development methods and DevSecOps practices, Red Hat said Monday

Lockheed worked with Red Hat Open Innovation Labs for eight weeks to replace the waterfall development process previously used for F-22 upgrades and to apply an adpative approach transformation to address Air Force requirements for the aircraft.

Introducing new capabilities for the warfighter usually takes five to seven years via the traditional waterfall process.

"Through its work with Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, Lockheed Martin has been able to integrate DevOps practices like domain-driven design and lean thinking into their environments,“ said Paul Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Red Hat's public sector business.

Smith, a 2019 Wash100 winner, added the reduction in planning time accelerates release cycles that can offer advantages to the service branch.

The Agile transformation effort helped increase the ability of Lockheed's F-22 scrum team to project future sprints by 40 percent during an enablement session.

Lockheed plans to incorporate the accelerated modernization approach into the entire F-22 development organization.
