ARRAY Awarded Contract to Replatform the ILS-S for the USAF
- Contract to take aging Base Supply System off COBOL and the Mainframe
Array Information Technology (ARRAY) announced today that the U.S. Air Force (USAF) selected ARRAY to lead a significant modernization of the Standard Base Supply System (SBSS), a critical system within the USAF supply chain.
ARRAY, and its partners NTT Data, TSRI, and PracTrans, will soon begin a critical modernization of ILS-S. ILS-S is the over-arching program name for an integrated family of data systems supporting base-level supply chain management applications. ILS-S provides supplies and equipment support to daily and wartime flying missions for the Air Force, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard units at 260 sites with over 15,000 users throughout the U.S. and around the world.

"We are honored to be awarded the tremendous responsibility for modernizing the ILS-S," said Mark Douglas , Director of Transformation at ARRAY and former Air Force Supply Officer. "The SBSS component of ILS-S is a critical system for the Air Force that has performed amazingly well since it was originally fielded in the 1960's. This modernization will dramatically increase the maintainability and affordability of this foundational Air Force supply chain capability. Achieving success on this modernization, using industry leading technology and processes, will open the door for similar modernizations on countless other Air Force data systems."
