DLA Synchronizes Global Support Activities via New Center in Virginia

The Defense Logistics Agency officially opened its new Agency Synchronization Operations Center on Wednesday at the McNamara Headquarters Complex in Fort Belvoir, Va., in an effort to better operationalize support to warfighters and agencies. 

DLA said Thursday the center has a team of experts that utilizes predictive analytic tools to create support plans that incorporate the agency's operational and business support functions around the world.

The ASOC replaces the Joint Logistics Operations Center created in 2008 and serves as an extension of the DLA Readiness Dashboard, which offers a real-time view of the status of key military weapons systems. 

DLA Director Army Lt. Gen. Darrell Williams said the center coordinates the agency's activities to deliver the appropriate combat logistics support for agency leaders and mission partners. 

The ASOC team will operate 24/7 to assess and determine the specific needs of partners and service members deployed worldwide.
