The US Army’s Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-Army) Increment I logistics system has been fully rolled out by Northrop Grumman, the company announced on 27 March.

GCSS-Army will give personnel a new level of visibility into maintenance, dispatching, unit supply, property book, finance and materiel management for greater flexibility in operations.

The web-based system replaces several aging and outdated management information systems used by the army, national guard and reserve, and integrates with more than 40 other army systems. Fielding required the conversion of 3.2 billion assets valued at more than $350 billion.

Dan Verwiel, vice president and general manager, missile defense and protective systems, Northrop Grumman, said: ‘Our long history with enterprise resource planning systems and our strong partnership with the army have made this monumental effort possible, and the benefits to the soldier are significant.

‘The streamlined logistics made possible by GCSS-Army will give soldiers greater agility, flexibility and a decisive advantage.’
