Air Systems - Logistics Solutions

The late 1990s introduced the concept of performance-based contracts within the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) air domain. Integrated Optimised Support (IOS), Through Life Customer Support (TLCS) and Contractor Logistic Support (CLS) are the recognised descriptors used within the air-orientated Defence industry to describe Original Equipment Manufacture (OEM) delivered support solutions.


Long-term support contracts have renewal and re-negotiation points every five years as a means of applying downward price pressure to the OEMs.

UK MoD air domain projects needs support to validate these pricing points and we can supply through carefully selected SQEP the following independent expertise:

    • Ranging & Scaling
    • Support Cost Modelling
    • Risk, Issue & Opportunity Management
    • Support Solution Design & validation
