In 2006, the Fuerza Aerea de Chile (FACh) procured 18 F-16 A/B Block 15 aircraft from the Royal Netherlands Air Force, and 10 F-16 C/D Block 50 aircraft from Lockheed Martin.
In order to support this new type of aircraft, the FACh also procured our solution for their Weapon System Management at the same time.
During the first phase of the project, which ran from September ’06 till February ’07, ILIAS Solutions together with its implementation partner, implemented all functionality required to organise O & I level maintenance at the Antofagasta Air Force Base, where the 18 F-16 A/B aircraft are stationed. This included the setup of the physical server infrastructure, the migration of legacy data, the configuration of the software suite for their use, and the training.
During the second phase of the project, which started in March ’07 and lasted till August ’07, ILIAS Solutions implemented similar functionalities at the Iquique AFB for the 10 F-16 C/D aircraft stationed there.
Finally, ILIAS Solutions implemented functionality for Central Procurement and D-level maintenance at Commando Logistico in Santiago. This phase lasted from September ’07 till December ’07.
This reference clearly demonstrates that ILIAS Solutions' products and capabilities allow fast track implementations.
Today, the FACh is gradually expanding its use of ILIAS to the entire Air Force.
Currently, measures for continuous improvement are being prepared using Key Performance Indicators on real transactional data, in close cooperation between FACh, VisionWaves and ILIAS Solutions.
