Leonardo wins NATO ALIS contract
Leonardo has been selected to provide logistic and support services for the NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS) programme, the company announced on 21 June.
Under the contract signed with NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance Management Agency, Leonardo will develop and deliver the NATO AGS Logistics Information System (ALIS). Leonardo is a member of the Northrop Grumman-led consortium developing the NATO AGS Core System.
The ALIS will be used by NATO to support the management of operations and maintenance services at the Main Operating Base in Sigonella, Italy, in deployed locations and by NATO logistic support management organisations during the AGS Core System life cycle.
The main ALIS functions will allow for planning, control and management of the supply chain, maintenance and repair activities, field service activities, accounting, warehousing and for personnel employment and training.
The system will be also used to maintain the NATO AGS Core baseline and configuration in supporting the organisation’s maintenance requirement to comply with continued and continuing Air Worthiness norms.
The contract also includes Mission Operational Support (MOS) systems and Transportable General Ground Stations (TGGS). The MOS and TGGS will collect data and images from the remotely-piloted aircraft for processing and intelligence analysis.
Leonardo will also deliver the Wide Band Data Link which provides line-of-sight communication between the ground segment and the system’s unmanned aerial vehicles.
