[Avionics Today 03-10-2015] BAE Systems was awarded a new $37 million three-year contract to provide obsolescence management support for the U.S. Air Force from its facilities in Fla., Ga., Okla. and Utah. The U.K.-based aerospace and defense manufacturer will use a Web-enabled system to help forecast when an aircraft part becomes obsolete, the Advanced Component Obsolescence Management (AVCOM) tool.

"In addition to supporting mission readiness, AVCOM delivers significant savings for the total cost of a system or platform by efficiently resolving difficult part obsolescence issues and providing advanced planning capabilities for managing the full life-cycle needs of a product,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ intelligence and security sector.
