The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

7 May 2021 -- The Air Mobility Command will work with Xage Security Inc. in Palo Alto, Calif. -- a cyber security company specializing in zero-trust architecture -- through a contract awarded by the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.

The work will focus on digitizing secure data sharing of repair information in flightline operations -- the work done on aircraft to prepare for takeoff.

Xage was also brought into secure other already-modernized methodologies in Air Mobility Command’s digital ecosystem. On top of adding new layers of security to the system, Xage also will bring a new multi-party view to the flight data.
