Kizano has been selected to support the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC), located at Patrick, AFB, FL.
The Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) provides technical measurements to monitor nuclear treaty compliance and develops advanced proliferation monitoring technologies to preserve our nation’s security. It is the sole organization in the federal government whose mission is to detect and report technical data from foreign nuclear explosions. AFTAC is on the leading edge of technological research and the evaluation of verification technologies for current and future treaties involving weapons of mass destruction which threaten our national security. Consisting of more than 3,600 sensors worldwide, AFTAC operates and maintains a global network of nuclear event detection equipment called the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection Systems (USAEDS), the largest sensor network in the U.S. Air Force. Once a disturbance is detected underground, underwater, in the atmosphere or in space, the event is analyzed for nuclear identification, and the findings are reported to national command authorities.
Kizano provides the AFTAC Commander with Task Management System support. Kizano is fortunate to have Mr. John Parker as our on-site subject matter expert for this system. Mr. Parker is a retired Air Force officer and former AFTAC Vice Commander.
