LM Standardizes on Splunk Software for the F-35 Lightning II

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced it was awarded a contract to support Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II Program. Splunk has provided Lockheed Martin with Splunk® Enterprise to monitor and analyze IT systems and network behavior for the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS), which supports the F-35 Lightning II, a 5th generation fighter jet.

Splunk Enterprise is initially being used by Lockheed Martin in 25 different operating environments for IT operations and application delivery, analyzing machine data from the systems and networks supporting the ALIS infrastructure to help ensure applications are operating at peak performance. The ALIS is the off-board IT backbone of the F-35 Lightning II Program, with capabilities to capture and analyze the fleet’s overall readiness in U.S. military branches and in a number of other countries using the F-35.

“Splunk is a proven leader in analyzing and visualizing machine data, and we are pleased to support this critical program,” said Bill Cull, vice president of global public sector, Splunk. “F-35 aircraft are flying data centers that generate a massive amount of information on each flight. The IT systems and applications supporting this program are essential, and Splunk Enterprise’s role is to support daily ALIS operations.”
