The Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) recently awarded Phoenix Operations Group a new contract beginning in October 2017. This OTA (other transaction agreement) project was awarded to Phoenix after a competitive proposal process with multiple bidders. The program’s objective is to develop software prototypes atop the Tactical Cloud Reference Implementation (TCRI). Phoenix has previously supported multiple Defense and Intelligence Community customers with TCRI development, cloud administration and system architecture. This TCRI expertise will now be leveraged to inject innovative new capabilities into Air Force programs.
