Our Life Cycle Support program approach is based upon systematic interactions of Engineering, Integrated Logistics Support, Depot and Field Support services that ensure system mission readiness. We offer a turn-key solution for sustainment that achieves long-term business goals.
The goal of any Life Cycle Support package is cost-effective, life-long system sustainment achieved through:
All aspects of a support program are addressed with our Integrated Logistics Support products and services that reinforce mission readiness when the equipment or system is first deployed, updated through various tech refresh cycles, or decommissioned and prepared for sale through the Foreign Military Sales program.
Leonardo DRS provides supply support and provisioning as part of a lifecycle support program. Our logisticians develop several provisioning support products, including the Technical Data Package (TDP), System block diagrams, Family Trees, List of End Items, Engineering Data for Provisioning (EDFP), Supplemental Data for Provisioning (SDFP), and Spares Forecasting/Installation and Check Out (INCO)/On-Board Repair Parts (OBRP).
Leonardo DRS has the training, software, and experience to determine provisioning technical data and related Logistics Management Information (LMI) required for Model Based Product Support (MBPS) systems and has the ability to create the required file format for input into the Integrated Computer Aided Provisioning System (ICAPS) as required to support your program.
Leonardo DRS provides Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) and Obsolescence Management to minimize program-supportability impact due to the discontinuation of critical items and raw materials. Items are identified and tracked by our DMSMS management team and data is shared with all program stakeholders.
Leonardo DRS participates with Integrated Product and Process Development working groups to share data and discuss impacts to the program. In support of your DMSMS management program, we work in conjunction with the Government team to implement a technology refresh program to mitigate obsolescence impacts.
In all cases we provide notification within 30 days if a process, component, or assembly required for delivery of a system is unavailable due to obsolescence or DMSMS issues. Our expertise in managing DMSMS and obsolescence provides the essential element that drives product updates critical to any long-term sustainment program.
