Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian: Air Force Faces F-35A Logistics Software Delivery Issues

F-35A U.S. Air Force official has said issues with logistics software could pose a challenge towards the service branch’s goal to achieve initial operational capability for its F-35A fighter jets in 2016, DoD Buzz reported Monday.

Brendan McGarry writes the Autonomic Logistics Information System software has a set of applications for mission planning, training, flying and maintenance functions and works to determine whether an aircraft is safe to take off.

“The long pole that you’re going to hear from all of us is really the delivery of the ALIS software,” said Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian, director of the service branch’s F-35 integration office at the Defense Department.

The Air Force expects to achieve IOC for 12 to 24 F-35A jets by Aug. 1, 2016, according to the report.
