MAT releases latest version of SAMS-E
McLane Advanced Technologies (MAT) has released the latest version of the Standard Army Maintenance System - Enhanced (SAMS-E), the logistics system that enables the US Army to conduct maintenance management of vehicles and equipment. Version 13.01.06 release incorporates the Army Golden Master (AGM) version of Windows 7 for improved information assurance (IA) and Department of Defence compliance.
MAT collaborated with the Software Engineering Centre-Fort Lee (SEC-Lee) and the Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM) for the latest version, which incorporates more than 170 enhancements into the baseline of SAMS-E, the Army's single ground maintenance and materiel management solution originally developed by MAT in 2004 to integrate multiple out-dated logistics systems. According to MAT, the new product is a secure, sophisticated solution that equips today's Army with the technology needed for the future.
The company said that the improvements to SAMS-E optimise user experience by merging current Windows technology with state of the art security. Automation of tasks offers greater efficiency in managing day-to-day processes and increases the success rate for system backups and secure data archiving. The new release leverages Windows imaging technology, providing a controlled environment for smoother, more reliable implementations.
As a result, system load-time is reduced by approximately 50% from the previous versions, delivering on time and under budget results. The streamlined workflow capabilities and improved implementation process make SAMS-E a valuable tool for a more cost-effective Army. In addition, 13.01.06 completely revitalises embedded training with new e-learning capabilities and an interactive instructional approach.
