WASHINGTON. Officials at the U.S. Air Force, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) selected Alion Science and Technology for a $21 million task order under the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) Pool 3 contract. This task order has a 12-month base plus three option years period of performance.

Under the task order, Alion will provide services to the AFLCMC Robins Air Force Base in support of E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) Maintenance Steering Group 3 (MSG-3).

MSG-3 is a top-down, task oriented methodology designed to establish “The Right Time to Find and the Right Time to Fix.” It will transform the Air Force legacy maintenance program into a highly accurate set of synchronized tasks, officials say. Tasks are paired with all supportability elements and consolidated into a hierarchical construct, uniquely keyed with tracking numbers, creating a closed loop performance based reliability sustainment program.

Results of MSG-3 analysis will identify potential solutions to repetitive failures discovered providing analysis of the maintenance data to improve forecasting of maintenance requirements. It will also provide recommendations to support E-8C fleet-wide reliability issues and implementation of maintenance transformation through MSG-3 philosophy.
