Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI)
The FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) is the medical certification, research, education, and occupational health wing of the FAA’s Office of Aerospace Medicine, tracking medical certification activities and associated records for all aviators to ensure they’re medically certified to operate.

With multiple stakeholders requiring constant access to the system, OST had to ensure it had high availability and was functioning, updated, and secure at all times. The OST team also used Agile methodology to enhance stakeholder involvement by delivering scheduled and “as-needed” demos, in addition to training for business analysts to help improve the overall customer experience.
