Lockheed Martin-led team to upgrade logistics software system

  • 07-May-2010 12:30 EDT

The U.S. FAA awarded Lockheed Martin a five-year, $28-million contract to design and integrate a supply chain software platform that supports operations to maintain, repair, and track equipment used throughout the National Airspace System (NAS). The commercial off-the-shelf Logistics Center Support System (LCSS) will optimize the visibility, maintenance, inventory, and delivery of more than 100,000 pieces of equipment such as radar systems, lighting, and communications relay stations used by the NAS throughout its 41,000 facilities. LCSS integrates data from 14 legacy systems to optimize asset management, demand planning, resource scheduling, supply network, inventory control, and processes. The Lockheed Martin team, which includes ABeam Consulting, IFS, Principal Technologies, and Xyant Technology, will provide business process re-engineering, software configuration and test, and comprehensive training and change-management services.
