Abstract:

This study examined the feasibility of using on-board sensory data from the Marine Corps Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle AAAV as inputs to the Marine Corps Asset Tracking Logistics and Supply System, version II ATLASS II as a way to improve sustained-logistics decision making. It also looks at the possibility of feeding AAAV sensory data to the Optimized Naval Aviation Logistics Command Information System NALCOMIS at the Organizational Maintenance Activity OMA level. The major finding is that ATLASS II cannot fully support AAAV inputs at this time but the logistics system will be capable of such support when the AAAV is fielded in 2006. Another finding is that the Platform Software Interface Subsystem being developed for NALCOMIS could significantly improve the logistical management of the AAAV life-cycle if integrated into ATLASS II. An additional improvement would result if the Configuration Management Subsystem of NALCOMIS could be integrated into ATLASS II. Recommendations are made for logistical management practices and logistics policy.
