JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — The Air Force has successfully upgraded and transferred the Military Personnel Data System to the Defense Information Systems Agency Defense Enterprise Computing Center, Air Force Personnel Center officials said today.

“We’re pleased that the MilPDS upgrade took less time than anticipated, and we are well on our way to getting information updated in the system,” said Joe Thele, Air Force Personnel Operations Agency director. “The quick turn and successful upgrade is due to the meticulous planning and hard work of our Total Force team.”

MilPDS is the primary records database for personnel data and actions that occur throughout every Airman’s career. MilPDS is also used to initiate pay actions, maintain Air Force accountability and strength data and support a host of interactions with other Air Force and Department of Defense processes and systems that rely on personnel data.

AFPOA and Air Force Lifecycle Management Center teams worked closely with the Defense Manpower Data Center, AFPC, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard, Air Force Space Command, and base personnel teams to develop a comprehensive plan to bring down the old personnel data system, upgrade it, and stand it back up. March 4, AFPC Commander Maj. Gen. A.J. Stewart hit the button to shut down MilPDS for what was expected to be 23 days. However, the upgrade was accomplished in 17 days.

Active duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve personnel agencies are working hand in hand with base force support squadrons and military personnel sections to update personnel data and transactions in MilPDS.

“This upgrade and transfer being accomplished in less time than expected is a testament to the strides we’ve made to work together for the good of all three components of the Total Air Force,” said Thele.
