One Network Enterprises’ Real Time Value Network (RTVN) has been selected by AAR to support repairs to major landing gear components of select US Air Force airframes.

The RTVN will be used in support of the USAF’s performance-based logistics (PBL) landing gear contract and will enable AAR to more effectively manage depot level maintenance on landing gear assemblies of the C-130 Hercules, KC-135 Stratotanker and E-3 Sentry weapon systems.

The system acts as an interface, allowing AAR’s maintenance system to efficiently communicate with the air force’s strategic wholesale inventory management systems via Defense Logistics Agency Transaction Services, by using Defense Logistics Management Standards (DLMS) messages.

Mark deRu, VP integration and business intelligence, AAR, said: ‘One Network’s technology will enhance the way AAR interacts with the USAF wholesale supply system (D035A) that manages the source of supply group parts.

'The move to DLMS removes the data exchange limitations of MILS, a decades-old standard. This frees the USAF to expand its requisitioning activities to AAR as part of their system modernisation efforts.’
