The rollout of the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) is almost complete, with installation on HMS Prince of Wales due to complete this year. As technology advances, F35 offboard systems need to continue to be developed through-life. The UK supports the Joint Program Office (“JPO’s”) Operational Data Integrated Network (ODIN) programme which will replace ALIS. The Partner Nations are fully engaged with the JPO over the development of ODIN. The JPO plans to trial various industrial solutions to ODIN over the coming year, with rollout to US Services in Q4 2021 and to Partner Nations in 2022.
