Air Force Institute holds international conference on digital transformation

The Chief of Air Staff, CAS, Air Marshal Oladayo Amao, says the Nigerian Air Force, NAF successes depends largely on human resource, technical and logistics support.

Amao made this known at the 1st International Conference on Data Science and Engineering organised by the Air force Institute of Technology, AFIT in Kaduna.

The Chief of Staff said data science and engineering was very imperative to the air force, as NAF also depends mainly on engineering, ranging from airpower, aviation and integration of data.

The Conference
He explained that the conference would provide an opportunity and enabling environment for researchers, engineers, scientists, technologists, industrial specialists and decision makers to share experience and proffer solutions to issues concerning engineering as it relates highly to NAF.

“Nigerian Air force will focus on valuable opportunities to develop its human resources in technical and logistics support for efficient deployment of air power in the battle against crime in Nigeria.

“Pervasive computing in aero space military intelligence is an integral part of the Nigerian Air force operations.

“The international conference on data science and engineering is in response to the dynamic and complex nature of security environment, which requires application of computarised gadgets for easy and efficient sensor, processing and transmission of security information,”  Amao stressed.


Earlier, the Commandant of AFIT, AVM Musbau Olatunji said the conference was very germane to AFIT as it would help the institute complement the type of training they give to students.

Objective of AFIT
He disclosed that the objective of setting up AFIT was to enhance the maintenance capabilities of NAF personnel.


“What do we really maintain?, the aircraft, and our aircraft platforms are highly computarised with technical systems so this is where conferences like this especially on how to capture, analyse and control our system is very important”, Olatuji said.

Presenting a paper, Professor Amos David of the department of information and communication services, Lorraine University, France advocated for pervasive system of engineering which requires less human intervention because automated processes are usually included into objects.

He explained that the pervasive process would help in tracking criminals.

The two-day conference had the theme “Embracing Digital Transformation.
