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.


Since the go-live, ILIAS has become the integration platform to replace multiple organic legacy NATO applications, thus expanding its footprint. Today, ILIAS is used cross Main- and Forward Operating Bases to optimize operational readiness of E3-A AWACS fleet and coordinate 30 “Sources Of Repair (SOR)” globally.


In the early 1990’s, the Belgian Air Force had a requirement for significant improvements in aircraft availability and, at the same time, to reduce support costs and complement levels. ILIAS has been specifically designed and built to address these needs and was put into production for the Air Force in 1997.

As part of a strategic plan, in which the entire Belgian Defense organization was re-structured; the Air Force, Navy and Army ceased to exist and became the Air, Navy, Land and Medical components, with a number of shared functions like Material and Human Resources. As a consequence, all four components started using ILIAS as an unique system for the material management of all materials in the organization.
