In-Service Asset Sustainment Programs

IFS offers software that can enable specific program support for assets in service, including land and sea assets, as well as communications systems and equipment. IFS Software Solutions can be deployed at the core of a systems integrator's offering to their military customer, or implemented directly by the military end user or performance-based logistics (PBL) provider.

  • Affordable readiness – Precisely monitor asset availability rates and link policy changes to maintenance outcomes in order to achieve significant reductions in sustainment costs.
  • Optimize performance – Effectively plan and schedule maintenance based on real-time mission and asset utilization data, resource constraints and parts availability, without incurring costs due to oversupply.
  • Operational agility – Confidently react to unexpected events and changing mission profiles to reduce asset time-out-of-service and optimize operational readiness.
  • Total asset visibility – Actively manage the logistics network with an integrated, holistic approach for the achievement of targeted performance improvements and improved decision-making.
  • Deployed operations – Accurately identify assets, resources and required maintenance through in-theater visibility of operational, intermediate and depot maintenance and real-time total asset visibility (TAV) of globally deployed assets.

OPÉRATIONS DÉCONNECTÉES

IFS Disconnected Operations est conçu pour fournir aux organisations militaires et de défense la capacité de déployer, d'exploiter, de protéger et de restituer en toute sécurité des moyens aériens et des données partout dans le monde aussi longtemps que nécessaire avec n'importe quel niveau de connectivité à partir de matériel déconnecté, comme les ordinateurs portables.

Cette solution d'aviation de défense fournit toutes les capacités de maintenance nécessaires pour maintenir l'efficacité et la conformité des missions, permettre la collecte de dossiers techniques tout au long des missions et assurer l'intégrité et l'exhaustivité des données au retour de la base. IFS Disconnected Operations fournit ces fonctionnalités :

  • Gestion des données d'application et d'ingénierie des aéronefs et des stocks à partir d'un point central vers des lieux qui sont soit déconnectés, soit peuvent être déconnectés à tout moment, du système central de gestion de la maintenance.
  • Déploiement des ressources dans tous les lieux d'opération avec IFS Disconnected Operations tout en préservant la résilience du réseau, quelles que soient les contraintes de connectivité.
  • Permettre le fonctionnement sécurisé des actifs avec des enregistrements isolés, tout en assurant l'intégrité des données par des consolidations progressives.
  • Amélioration de la précision et de la cohérence des données, mais protection contre les erreurs et la duplication des données grâce à un seul enregistrement actif des données. 
  • Assurer la conformité totale avec les exigences de navigation aérienne pour les bases déconnectées via un dépôt de dossiers techniques pour tous les avant-postes.
