Puckboard is a collaborative scheduling software that was created by an AF organization known as TRON, comprised of both active duty and guard/reserve military members that is hosted within the DoD’s cyber infrastructure. Puckboard is accessible on any device connected to the internet, both government devices on the military network as well as personal devices with any kind of civilian internet access around the globe. Puckboard was originally designed as a modern solution for flying units to efficiently schedule aircrew in a way that minimized input required by scheduling teams while maximizing visibility by the aircrew.
Puckboard utilizes the DoD’s Platform One (P1) architecture to provide secure, approved delivery of IL-4 data to any device. The P1 structure allows a user to login to hosted web apps using Single Sign On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication(MFA) such as Google Authenticator. Each user is capable of using either 1) a username + password + MFA or 2) CAC card + pin to log into any P1 hosted software from any regular web browser and URL. Some applications like Mattermost (MM) even have approved iOS and Android native apps.
Puckboard lives completely within the P1 framework and complies with all federal and DoD security requirements. They operate under the PartyBus continuous ATO and employ a cybersecurity method known as DevSecOps which bakes in security requirements at every step of the coding, testing, evaluation, and launch process. Puckboard currently operates at ImpactLevel 4 (IL-4) and each unit is responsible for ensuring their use case is capable of IL-4 dissemination. Our team can help answer any security questions and provide expanded security & ATO paperwork if requested.
Platform One ATO
Puckboard is currently paid for through a combination of AF level Innovation funds and Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funds. The program is fully funded through 2023 and is gaining support at the MAJCOM level for Program of Record funding for the future.
