Maintenance information system linking the seven global F-35 operators is activated for flight test Lockheed Martin is getting a head start on plans for a global Joint Strike Fighter sustainment system by switching on the information network that will collect, analyze and communicate maintenance data for F-35 flight testing. The autonomic logistic information system (ALIS) will begin collecting data from the first F-35, which had completed 17 flights by the end of April. Initially data will be entered by maintainers, but an upgrade is planned to enable the The global sustainment operations centre in aircraft to downlink data in flight, says Kevin LeBeau, ALIS integrated product Fort Worth, Texas, USA. © Lockheed Martin team director. ALIS provides 38% of the functionality needed to support the 14 development flight-test aircraft planned, says LeBeau, enabling maintainers to isolate faults and trigger the supply chain to deliver replacement parts. Functionality is based on commercial software, including the Maintenix maintenance management system developed by Canada's Mxi Technologies. LeBeau says the ALIS team is developing shippable code every 30 days. When the second F- 35 flies in May 2008 maintainers will be able to run checks and access status on the flight line using laptops and handheld portable maintenance aid. Lockheed has established an operations control centre at its Fort Worth, Texas facility that includes sustaining engineering in order to develop repair tasks, improve component reliability and optimize the maintenance program against key performance parameters of aircraft availability, sortie generation rate and the performance based logistics contract, which shares risks and costs between the US DoD and Lockheed. The international program team includes the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Denmark and Norway with Singapore and Israel participating through a non-program Security Cooperative Participation agreement.
