WA ANG Code Militia: Tactical Coding, by the Warfighter for the Warfighter

Five members of the Washington Air National Guard Code Militia quickly adapt by using virtual tools to meet during COVID-19 Sept. 8, 2021. The team regularly meets and in real time make code changes while working on a discovery phase task to visualize data from multiple sources on a single common operating picture for the next generation tactical command and control mission system. The Washington Air National Guard spearheaded the formation and implementation of an organic software coding team to get after problems in order to take extremely knowledgeable operators and support personnel and embed them into the front lines of software development to help make sure any new software and computer networks are mission ready. Members of the team include Lt. Col. Rex Ayers, 225th Air Defense Group; Capt. Sharon Torres, 143rd Cyber Operations Squadron; Tech. Sgt. Brandon Johnson, 225th Support Squadron; Maj. Henry Lee, 225th Air Defense Group; and Senior Airman Lance Richards, 116th Air Support Operations Squadron. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Lt. Col. Rex Ayers)
