Westar - Sample Data Collection Contract for US Army


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Westar Aerospace & Defense Group, Inc.
: 26 July, 2007  (New Product)
Westar has been awarded a five-year, $100 million re-compete contract for continued support to its Sample Data Collection (SDC) program by the Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity (AMSAA), an analysis organization of the U.S. Army.
Under the contract, Westar will collect data on equipment usage and maintenance from garrison environments, field training exercises and combat areas, and help the Army provide timely, comprehensive studies and analyses based on the data. Westar's data collection and analysis services will be applied to all Army equipment, such as ground combat systems, tactical wheeled vehicles and aviation systems.

'Westar's job is to help AMSAA improve the performance, availability, maintainability and reliability of weapon systems by collecting, analyzing and reporting Ďat-the-source-validated' logistics data,' said Michael Gross, Westar Program Manager, SDC. 'For example, we collect empirical data during periods of intensive field training to improve the data base and help the Army to compute more realistic combat usage factors.'

SDC data are used to optimize the Army's parts usage, maintenance and manpower requirements in support of combat, peace-keeping and disaster-relief forces.

Westar has provided AMSAA with sample data collection and analysis services since 1992, when the company's logistics information management arm was then known as COBRO Corporation. Today, Westar provides these services at virtually every major Army installation around the world. In addition to the U.S., this includes Afghanistan, Iraq, Germany, Korea, Kosovo, Kuwait and Qatar.
