Lockheed Martin has received approval to install the updated version of the F-35's Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) software at US Air Force (USAF) and US Navy F-35 sites, the company announced on 26 April.

The upgrade enhances the ability of ALIS to manage forward operations and sustainment.

ALIS is the F-35's fleet management system, designed to reduce cost of operations and maintenance while increasing aircraft availability; integrating preventative maintenance, flight scheduling and the mission planning system. Following successful flight testing, ALIS 2.0.2 will be installed at all operational F-35 sites by the end of 2017.

ALIS 2.0.2 now integrates propulsion data, enabling users to manage the F-35 engine from inside ALIS, eliminating the requirement for multiple maintenance systems and field service representatives to aid with engine diagnostics, analysis and maintenance. ALIS 2.0.2 also improves life-limited parts tracking and streamlines resource management for deployed operations.

The updated software also includes the ability to network, which will allow users to establish connections between deployed locations and home stations. This upgrade provides parent units versatility in managing the logistics tail for a deployed squadron.

The company expects to receive approval for fleet-wide fielding to F-35 sites for the US Marine Corps by mid-June 2017.
