NATO's Airborne Early Warning & Control Force operates the NATO E3A Boeing 707 fleet worldwide out of its main operating base in Geilenkirchen, Germany,
In 1996, NATO carried out a series of studies which resulted in a detailed specification for a "Programme Integrated Logistics System (PILS)". The conclusion of the study included the requirements for the replacement of the legacy CAMS/SBSS software (CAMS: Core Automated Maintenance System - SBSS: Standard Base Supply System).
ILIAS Solutions was chosen as the best available COTS solution on the market to replace the target legacy systems and to manage the data of all procurement, supply and maintenance processes.
ILIAS interfaces with the NATO financial system (FINS) for budget information, with SAP for commercial procurement, with FMS for foreign military sales and finally with NACOMS for NATO codification data.
Since the go-live, ILIAS has become the integration platform to replace multiple organic legacy NATO applications, thus expanding its footprint.
