MCLEAN, Va., June 19 (UPI) -- An autonomic logistics system for thousands of U.S. Army vehicles around the world is to be provided by QinetiQ North America.
The system, as well as analytical tools and data analysis, will enable personnel responsible for logistics, operations and maintenance to provide timely and accurate maintenance decisions and integrated logistics processes.
"Our extensive experience with the Army in field maintenance data collection is very important to successfully supporting TACOM's CBM+ requirements under this new contract," says David Shrum, executive vice president and general manager of QNA's Engineering and Life Cycle Management business unit.
"That experience and our detailed knowledge of the customer and their mission will allow us to provide the U.S. Army with a low-cost solution that maximizes efficiency."
The contract for a condition-based maintenance plus pilot system was issued by the Army's TACOM Life Cycle Management Command in Warren, Mich. It is for three years and carries a value of about $17 million.
