ISO Group responds to defense spending cuts with sustainment solutions to extent the life of aging military equipment.

SECDEF mandated efficiency improvements and related cost reduction objectives coupled with the automatic cuts in defense spending triggered by the Super Committee failure have focused attention on the sustainment of aging fleets. In the current economy, DoD projects military sustainment to be a key driver, with most new platform introduction delayed until after 2020. As a result already aging and overworked fleets will have their service life extended beyond original estimates through a variety of reset and recapitalization programs. With OEM capacity focused on production for over a decade the availability of older, replaced variant, and at times now obsolete parts to sustain these fleets can be more challenging than ever. To support platforms currently fielded and in service, ISO Group maintains historic part technical data, manufacturing capability, stocked and available inventory listings, and replacement part data. ISO Group supports Government (field maintenance, Depot Level, and intermediate level) and OEM efforts to extend service life and reduce total lifecycle management costs for over 1700 platforms. In many instances obsolete military parts are readily available via the ISO Group Knowledgebase.

Procurement officers, Program Managers/ Buyers, and Engineers can search ISO Group's vast NSN parts knowledgebase and request information or a quotation 24/7 online at They can also search by platform such as HMMWV, M113, M60, C-130, F-16, UH-60 etc. or by keywords.
