Greenbelt, Md.-based Array Information Technology (ARRAY) announced May 12 that the U.S. Air Force (USAF) has selected ARRAY to lead a modernization of the Standard Base Supply System (SBSS), a critical system within the USAF supply chain.
“We are honored to be awarded the tremendous responsibility for modernizing the ILS-S,” ARRAY Director of Transformation and former Air Force Supply Officer 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 1960’s. This modernization will dramatically increase the maintainability and affordability of this foundational Air Force supply chain capability. Achieving success on this modernization, using industry leading technology and processes, will open the door for similar modernizations on countless other Air Force data systems.”
ARRAY, and its partners NTT Data, TSRI and PracTrans, will modernize ILS-S, which provides supplies and equipment support to daily and wartime flying missions for the Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard units at 260 sites with more than 15,000 users throughout the U.S. and around the world.
