US Air Force signs enterprise deal with SDL

SDL has signed an enterprise agreement with the United States Air Force (USAF) to provide the SDL Contenta Publishing Suite for Technical Order (TO) creation, management and delivery, which includes support of technical information into predictive maintenance and analysis across all USAF assets.

With the enterprise license agreement, the USAF has entered the last stage of its consolidation strategy to deliver a centralized enterprise technical data creation, management and delivery solution. The SDL solution will support maintenance and operations personnel with diagnostic checklists and repair procedures, interacting with other USAF systems such as health monitoring, materials management and maintenance management systems.

The USAF’s Technical Order Authoring and Publishing (TOAP) system is hosted and managed by the Air Force Lifecycle Management Center, on behalf of the Air Force Material Command, and is its single organic enterprise TO authoring and publishing system. Originally implemented in 2006 as the Warner Robins-Integrated Data for Maintenance (WR-IDM), the system provides content/configuration management, process workflow, and authoring and publishing capabilities to all USAF programs, as necessary to create and sustain USAF TOs.

TOAP will help manage technical content in support of the USAF’s asset maintenance for all USAF programs, including the new T-X trainer aircraft program, and various programs aligned under the USAF Nuclear Weapons Center. The TOAP system is the single USAF system supporting TO source data content/configuration management, editorial sustainment, and publishing processes.

“The USAF is a diligent organization, looking to streamline processes and gain maximum efficiencies across its global operations,” said Thomas Labarthe, Chief Revenue Officer, SDL. “We’re excited to have been selected by the USAF as its enterprise technical data solution, and look forward to working closely with the team to deliver efficiencies across its operations.”
