The US Air Force has introduced an iOS modern mobile app called Battle Record Information Core Environment (BRICE) that will offer time and efficiency improvements for aircraft maintainers.

The Air Force Reserve Command went live with the app in late 2018, with an estimated 100 users to be enrolled by February 2019.

It is estimated that the app saves users an hour or more per day. BRICE has been designed with required US Department of Defense security and authentication to enable maintainers to input, store and transmit data in real time to the maintenance database via a handheld device. It will give aircraft maintainers direct access the maintenance database from the flight line at the point of aircraft repair, eliminating the need to secure their tools, go to back to their office and log into a network computer to document the maintenance actions performed.

Because the data entry can occur in real time by using the new app, there is a greater probability of accuracy and less steps involved compared to the current steps of writing notes on a piece of paper and transcribing them into the database later from an office.

The application has been developed in partnership with Monkton, Amazon and Verizon.
