Abstract:

The US Air Force has a requirement to be aware of the state of its weapon systems and the support equipment within real-time or at least near real-time, however, the means to offer this visibility does not currently exist. The Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL has started a new Research Development RD program to investigate what it would require to meet the warfighter needs. This 6.3 Applied Technology project is called Smart Systems for Logistics Command and Control SSLC2. The goal of the program is to develop a cross-cutting capability to passively collect critical logistics information required to manage wing level resources, and process it into a form that supports quality decision making by wing level commanders. Additionally, this information should be capable of flowing upward to support daily situational reports at the theater level. The AFRL researchers will take advantage of the successful Logistics Control Information and Support LOCIS program. The LOCIS program showed how wing level logisticians can be more productive if fed the status of the wings logistics resources. Portions of the LOCIS program relied on canned databases during their testing because the means to generate real-time status information did not exist.
