Following the acquisition and successful implementation of the General Dynamics (GD-OTS) Light Weight Automatic Grade Launcher into service across Army, as a Prime Support Contractor (PSC) NIOA now supports four primary weapon systems currently in use across Defence.
Sustainment of the weapons fleets involves working closely with the Department of Defence Systems Program Office in providing technical and inventory support as well as ongoing management of parts, obsolescence and associated catalogue data. The support contract also includes engineering and maintenance management through to high-grade repair where necessary.
The NIOA sustainment team manages the demand and replenishment of associated weapon system parts and accessories at Primary Support Units (PSU’s) and Joint Logistics Units (JLU’s) via specialised software on the Defence Secure Network.
The objective is to maintain weapon system availability and therefore planned capability across Defence.
