Asset management software for front line use

Lockheed Martin Information Systems And Global Services : 29 November, 2012  (Application Story)
JAMES technology from Lockheed Martin in use by British forces in Afghanistan for asset management

Lockheed Martin’s Joint Asset Management and Engineering Solutions (JAMES) technology has been deployed by British forces using rugged laptops in Afghanistan.

The logistic information management software system monitors millions of pieces of Armed Forces equipment for availability, location, condition and configuration.  The technology has expanded considerably in the past eight years, having originally been developed to monitor Army vehicles.

Nowadays, all three Services use the system to analyse maintenance, repair and failure data of land-based equipment ranging from vehicles to small arms, generators and night vision goggles.  Most recently, ISO containers and aircraft ground support equipment have been added to the capability.

The MoD is acquiring 12,000 ruggedized laptops that will enable users, including those in operational bases, to record maintenance and configuration, helping to increase operational effectiveness.

“JAMES is allowing us to carry out equipment management much more effectively so that we can monitor spares usage and only procure the spares that are needed, therefore saving support costs and improving the efficiency of availability contracts,” explained Toby Mills, Managing Director of Lockheed Martin UK Global Training and Logistics.

Development of the JAMES technology continues to expand.  The system has been in use on the amphibious assault ship HMS Ocean, while trials are also taking place to assess the ability to extract performance data from vehicles using their Health and Usage Monitoring Systems by downloading it straight to JAMES laptops.

In addition, overseas military customers are interested in the system along with potential commercial users.
