• The purpose of this app is to provide members of the Cadet Wing with a means through which they can access constantly-changing daily information and a number of other pieces of technology needed daily, while on the go. The app will update and display Schedule of Calls data including uniform requirements, meals, Commandant’s time scheduling, Checkpoints (Officer of the Day, Senior Officer of the day, Last AF Day, etc.), and other Time Critical information. It will also serve as an interface to access other USAFA-specific apps including the use of CAMIS (a heavily relied upon resource for Force Protection and Accountability) and Q2i (used in grade and homework management). Overall, the primary purpose of this app is its housing function for other USAFA-related apps. The app is constantly expandable and will eventually grow to be the one-stop source for all the resources needed in life as a cadet.
Screenshots of the completed app (above).
Our team was given approximately a month to design an app that could be used by either the cadet wing or in the active Air Force to integrate technology in order to improve some task that is currently done by hand.
After some hard decision-making, we finally decided on an app we knew cadets would love. The Operations Routine Order and Q2i are both highly relied-upon and mobile versions would allow cadets to easily stay up-to-date.
Utilizing PHP scripts on the server (see bottom right) we were able to sync the app by sending XML to the mobile device.
PHP and XML code snippets
Q2i is currently only an online tool, used by students to check their grades and only available on campus.
We used Xcode (left) and Interface Builder (right) for a majority of the app’s design.
The Routine Order maintains all of the days information, formations, etc.
The application syncs with an external database which is hosted on a MAMP (Mac + Apache + MySQL + PHP) server.
This will benefit the cadet wing when implemented. It was a great exercise to show how a real computer science project in the real world might be performed from the beginning stages of design through implementation, testing, and deploying the program.
Using xCode and Interface Builder, we created the App over a span of two months
The ORO requires a fairly extensive database structure.
