Hampton, VA: TrustedQA’s Air Operations Center (AOC) Program was recently recognized with two awards for their work on modernizing the U.S. Air Force’s primary command system using the latest DevOps practices.
The two awards include Aviation Week’s Program Excellence Award for OEM Sustainment and the Government Innovation Award for Digital Transformation.
Led by prime contractor Raytheon, TrustedQA’s AOC team is changing how the Air Force buys and deploys software, coding and deploying critical mission applications in as little as 150 days, saving millions of dollars and thousands of hours on tasks that were previously performed manually at the AOCs. TrustedQA is working under Agile and DevOps processes that put a priority on people and interactions over tools and processes. These processes emphasize constant communication within teams as well as with the customer. Our teams frequently meet, so everybody knows what everybody else is doing, creating a feedback loop that lets teams adjust based on what customers are telling them.
The AOCs provide a strategic capability for the U.S. Air Force with operators at 22 global locations. The AOC Weapon System provides command and control of aircraft conducting a range of missions in a set geographical area.
“Their approach is really great as they focus on those hybrid outside the box critical thinker testers who can perform all types of testing, hence the word “hybrid” where testers also have a situational approach to testing, not just “checkers” but overall contributors to quality.”
“The TQA technical team has provided support as expected. Their employees are qualified, perform productive work quickly, and have shown a wealth of knowledge and experience. Many come with skills that are difficult to find/fill. We have been extremely happy with the candidates that have come from TrustedQA.”

"TrustedQA remains an integral part of the program's long-standing record of delivering innovative solutions and quality products to the customer. As a mainstay on the program, their test and software engineers have provided critical support, especially as the program reaches major milestones in replacing legacy functionality within the GCCS-J suite of products. Through their tireless effort and tenacious resolve, TrustedQA engineers have afforded Northrop Grumman every opportunity to contend in what has become a highly competitive market."
