French Army gets joint logistic support platform

11th December 2018 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales and the French Ministry of Defence have set up a joint logistic support platform to improve support services for the French armed forces' hardware, software and security management.

The platform, located at the 14th Equipment Support Base in Nouâtre in Central France, is a part of the Maintenance en Condition Opérationnelle - Terre (MCO-Terre) 2025 land forces through-life support transformation plan. The contract awarded to Thales by the integrated through-life support structure for land forces equipment and systems (SIMMT) has been operational since November 2018.

The MCO-Terre 2025 through-life support transformation plan is an effort to improve the availability of defence systems for the French armed forces in increasingly complex environments, in particular by developing innovative digital services.

For the project, Thales and other French companies will conduct at least 40% of all maintenance activities. Thales is developing government/industry cooperation on the SIMMT’s MCO-plan with a view to improving system availability, optimising costs, capitalising on the defence ministry’s own resources and sharing knowledge and know-how.

Automated interconnection of the information systems in service with the defence ministry and its industry partners, and the use of RFID technology to store and retrieve data remotely, provide all stakeholders with a shared, comprehensive view of the overall support chain. The solution saves time, improves traceability and boosts reliability to optimise equipment fleet management.
