Abstract

This proposed research combines Frontier Technology, Inc. s AFSPC and decision aide experience along with Synergy s insight and knowledge of the Virtual Space Logistics Readiness Center (VSLRC) to develop and demonstrate critical, information technology enhancements to provide an added capability to VSLRC. The existing VSLRC is an interactive system that increases support to the space systems surface-fighter by providing access to near real-time system operational and equipment status and linking logistics data to its impact on operational readiness. The FTI/Synergy Team will provide important automation and data handling capabilities that will enable users to provide more timely updates of system status information, enabling effective decisions on system mission readiness. The Phase II research effort will develop prototypes of the enhanced capabilities for testing and user feedback of proposed software functionality and will implement the capabilities in VSLRC. This effort will provide the space community with access to ground-support space systems' health and operational status data which will greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of sustainment and logistic activities.
