Project Announcement: Automated Product Systems Development, Logistics, and Sustainment Support Demonstration – Phase III

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on a multiphase CTMA initiative to advance the state of the art in automated product systems development, logistics, and sustainment tools and processes and demonstrate an integrated ecosystem that can better design, prototype, qualify, produce, maintain, and sustain manned and unmanned ground systems. This ecosystem must:

  • Enable the rapid employment of engineering capabilities to design, modify, and integrate new or legacy systems and subsystems
  • Improve the identification of part and supplier risks, and resolve critical and safety-related part issues
  • Reduce the time and cost to deliver systems and components that are reliable, cost effective, and available to meet performance, maintenance, and sustainment requirements

The solution to be demonstrated will leverage three military ground systems programs at various stages of the lifecycle as surrogates to prove out the flexibility and effectiveness of employing these automated and integrated tools, processes and systems. The desired outcome is to provide proven and formalized processes and toolsets to deliver, maintain, and sustain products in a manner that increases system reliability, availability, and maintainability throughout various product lifecycles using organic and industry stakeholders.

Phase III will focus on maturing the lessons learned from Phase II and applying the system development, logistics, and sustainment processes and tools to material, fielding, and training support activities, major component maintenance and sustainment issues occurring during fielding, and vehicle system maintenance trainers needed to assist with ensuring operators and maintainers can maintain major vehicle propulsion system components.
