US Navy launches sustainment pilot for E-2D

8th January 2020 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Navy has launched the first Sustainment Program Baseline (SPB) pilot for the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye.

Sustainment is the management of everything required to enable future readiness. To maintain mission capable rates across the navy’s fleet, a highly complex naval sustainment ‘system of systems’ must manage tens of thousands of parts from thousands of suppliers, ever-changing technical data, millions of software lines of code, and billions in funding must be aligned and actively managed.

A key component of the pilot process is specific performance requirements for supply, repair, support equipment, engineering, trainers, maintenance and technical data unique for the E-2D that enable fleet squadrons to achieve readiness.

Sean Burke, deputy assistant secretary of the US Navy (Sustainment), said: ‘We are implementing new processes to bring more rigour into our sustainment efforts, and therefore increasing our output to the fleet. This sustainment pilot will improve the accuracy of our requirements, funding, performance and governance of weapon system sustainment.’
