Colonel Kevin Webb was instrumental in the development of the Mobile Mission Kit which uses smart device applications to capture timely, accurate mission data to be warehoused by Air Force Reserve Command.
Webb has been serving on active duty for more than 25 years and in his current position, wears the AFRC patch with a true sense of purpose. After reporting to Headquarters AFRC, Air, Space and Information Operations Directorate, at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, in late 2012, he quickly recognized an urgent need to ensure an accurate reporting of aircrew and mission data.
This seemingly simple scenario called for a visionary approach to solving the challenge of collecting accurate and reliable data instrumental to telling the complete story of Reservist’s level of effort supporting the warfighter.
No force can be labeled more mobile than the traditional reservist, so it made perfect sense for Webb to target the needs of TRs when his vision of the MMK was first sketched on a sheet of paper. He envisioned a paperless way to capture the Air Force Form 781 thereby reducing crew workload, saving time, improving data quality and improving fuel cost reimbursement.
MMK enables built-in logic and business rules to dramatically reduce human error and provides automation across multiple processes to streamline data generation and management. The MMKs are currently undergoing testing at five wings across AFRC.
