SCHRIEVER SPACE FORCE BASE, Colo. --
U.S. Air Force Col. Ericka Farmer-Hill, 50th Mission Support Group commander, visited the 50th Communications Squadron base equipment control office to review innovative computer imaging techniques at Schriever Space Force Base, Colorado, Dec. 16, 2021.
Client service technician Airmen and Guardians from the 50th CS created a new computer imaging process to increase the amount of new computers completed in a day by over 2000%.
“By implementing this new solution, the 50th CS will be able to more rapidly refresh existing laptops and computers with new devices,” said Steve Stengel, 50th CS deputy director. “The new devices will provide faster processing for Schriever SFB users.”
During her visit, Farmer-Hill coined the Airmen and Guardians who collaborated to develop this solution.
“The Airmen and Guardians have been working this diligently for two months,” said U.S. Space Force Capt. Joshua Shaffer, 50th Space Communications Squadron operations flight commander. “Their innovative ideas exemplify what the Space Force is pushing for.”
Farmer-Hill also participated in a hands-on demonstration by adding a computer into the Air Force network domain. This allows the computer to access all the applications, files and folders a user would require.
