PALO ALTO, Calif. Industrial security company Xage Security has won a contract with the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) to digitize and secure flightline maintenance operations.

Under the terms of the contract, selected maintenance squadrons of the Air Force Air Mobility Command (AMC) will use Xage’s Dynamic Data Security solution to digitize, streamline, transform, and secure the workflows used in aircraft maintenance operations. 

According to information from the company, the Xage Dynamic Data security product enables operational data to be digitally hashed, signed, and encrypted at the source; enforces data control at a granular level across all flightline participants, devices, and applications; and protects and replicates policies across the flightline to ensure that data can be published or consumed by authorized users on demand.
