CASE STUDY: McConnell AFB

McConnell AFB

Wichita, Kansas

4McConnell Air Force Base is the largest, premier installation for global air refueling and airlift operations in the U.S. Air Force and is home to the Air Mobility Command's 22d Air Refueling Wing (22ARW), Air Force Reserve Command's 931st Air Refueling Group (931ARG), and the Kansas Air National Guard's 184 Intelligence Wing (184IW).

Due to the nature of the installation's mission and operations, security and security systems are an absolute and imperative necessity to global continuity. In 2010 McConnell began to experience multiple security systems gaps that demanded rapid response and looked to VendTech to supply the necessary expertise, personnel, and solutions to mitigate potential security threats and risks. Our firm works diligently with the Security Force Squadron-Base Defense Operations to provide IMIR services to the entire installation, including Communications and the Flight-line (FMC), managing over 30 fixed and PTZ surveillance units, monitoring and inspecting all Head-end receivers and components, DVR systems and other peripheral equipment.
