The latest version of the F-35 Lightning II information technology backbone called the Autonomic Logistics Information System, or ALIS, was recently delivered to the Air Force Test Center at Edwards AFB, California, and the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division test facility at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. Following validation at flight test sites, the software will be installed at all F-35 locations and deployed for military operations beginning in 2015. As the F-35 fleet management tool, ALIS integrates preventative maintenance, flight scheduling, and the mission planning system. Pilots plan and debrief missions, and maintenance professionals sustain the F-35 using ALIS. During flight test operations, the test team will confirm new ALIS capabilities, including high-speed data download for increased aircraft availability.
