Some examples specific to expeditionary warfare and AT/FP:
LSInc supported the development and maintenance of Table of Allowances(TOA) for Shipboard AT/FP gear and equipment; Allowance Equipage Lists (AEL) for Personal Security Equipment (PSE), EMIO/VBSS AELs, and Unit Allowance Lists (UAL) for all USCG DSFs. We continue to maintain and update a valuable CM tool for managing Coast Guard UALs.
By using these TOA/AEL/DSF UALs and the information available in Inventory Databases, LSInc is able to provide customers with advice and recommendations on equipment shortfalls, bulk buy opportunities, resource sharing, and material procurement and acquisition options.
Total Asset Visibility
LSInc operates warehouses with material managed at the serial number/ IUID level. We execute UID compliance and tracking to support TAV and configuration management requirements. We are also one of the ‘early adopters’ of contractors successfully converting all Operating Materials and Supplies (OM&S) in our custody from legacy systems into Navy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
Acquisition Logistics and Procurement Support
LSInc supports U. S. Navy AT/FP programs by assisting with procurement support; market research; receipt, distribution and warehousing; and providing SCM in the implementation and execution of program requirements.
Operational Logistics and Readiness
LSInc operates and supports the Navy’s Armor Inspection System (AIS) through the collection, repair, testing and distribution of body armor. We have assisted in the development of data collection and maintenance necessary to prepare metrics for the analysis of ballistic insert failure rate data for all manufacturers of ballistic ceramic plates. This helps our customers formulate budget data to support Life Cycle Management (LCM) of fielded body armor systems.
