Lockheed Martin battle command system for US Army

28th April 2011 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


A Lockheed Martin developed, web-based capability for US Army readiness reporting, force registration, mobilization, and force projection planning has completely replaced the legacy system that previously provided this information. Lockheed Martin's Defense Readiness Reporting System-Army (DRRS-A) has replaced the Army Status of Resources and Training System (ASORTS) component within the Global Command and Control System-Army. ASORTS had been in use since 1996.

"DRRS-A provides readiness reporting under high operational tempo conditions that are inherent with overseas contingency operations," said Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR Systems with Lockheed Martin's IS&GS-Defense. "By retiring legacy systems and supplying web enabled applications and services, we're giving our major Combatant Commands new tools to support their current and future fight."

Created to track unit status information, DRRS-A improves the Army's ability to execute its part of the joint and combatant commanders' plans. Through DRRS-A, planners at the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Headquarters Army Staff, Combatant Commands, and Army unit levels bridge the knowledge gap between readiness status, war plans and courses of actions.

This network based, streamlined system supports several Army applications in a single location, enabling Army users to perform their assigned missions in near real time. DRRS-A also follows the Department of Defense net-centric strategy by making Army readiness data visible, accessible and understandable. As a service oriented architecture web service, DRRS-A allows approved and authorized users to access Army readiness data such as force registration, mobilization and force projection.
