The US Air Force (USAF) has selected Array Information Technology (Array) to carry out the modernisation of the standard base supply system (SBSS), which is a critical system within the USAF supply chain.

As part of the contract, Array along with its partners such as NTT Data, TSRI, and PracTrans, will undertake a critical modernisation of the integrated logistics system-supply (ILS-S).

ILS-S is the over-arching programme name for an integrated family of data systems that supports base-level supply chain management applications, Array said.

Array Transformation director Mark Douglas said: "The SBSS component of ILS-S is a critical system for the air force that has performed amazingly well since it was originally fielded in the 1960s.

"This modernisation will dramatically increase the maintainability and affordability of this foundational air force supply chain capability."

"This modernisation will dramatically increase the maintainability and affordability of this foundational air force supply chain capability."

Douglas also added that this modernisation will open the door for similar projects on countless other air force data systems.

ILS-S offers supplies and equipment support to daily and wartime flying missions for the Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard units.

It provides support to 260 sites with more than 15,000 users throughout the US and around the world.

In April this year, Array secured a contract from the USAF to support its deliberate and crisis action planning and execution segments (DCAPES) system sustainment and development requirement.
