Aviation services provider AAR (NYSE: AIR) has announced it has chosen One Network Enterprises´ Real Time Value Network (RTV) to provide essential repairs to major landing gear components of select United States Air Force (USAF) airframes, the company said.
The RTVN will be used in support of the USAF´s Performance-Based Logistics (PBL) landing gear contract; allowing AAR to more effectively oversee and manage depot level maintenance on landing gear assemblies of the C-130 Hercules, KC-135 Stratotanker and E-3 Sentry AWACS weapon systems.
With the RTVN, AAR´s maintenance system will be able to efficiently communicate with the USAF´s strategic wholesale inventory management systems via Defense Automatic Addressing System (DAAS) – formerly known as DLA Transaction Services (DLA-TS) – by using Defense Logistics Management Standards (DLMS) messages.
