BAE Systems has secured a potential five-year, $66.6M contract to provide the U.S. Air Force tools and services to manage availability risks for weapon platforms and other systems as part of the branch's Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages program.
The company said Wednesday it aims to help the Air Force address mission capability goals through the implementation of the Advanced Component Obsolescence Management suite.
AVCOM includes a database of more than 100M components and a web-based tool designed to help users predict when a part will reach obsolescence or require a costly purchase.
The suite also works to determine possible replacements and supports case information exchange, BAE noted.
Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of Air Force solutions at BAE, said the company will implement a cloud-based predictive analytics technology for the DMSMS program's next iteration.
The company is working to migrate the suite to the Amazon Web Services' GovCloud environment for the military service to manage performance, increase user base and secure assets.
“Delivering this enhanced AVCOM technology roadmap demonstrates our continued commitment to the Air Force’s digital transformation,” Trainer added.
The contract from the 429th Supply Chain Management Squadron marks the 10th DMSMS support award for the company over the past decade.
