NST offers rapid visibility into the consequences on readiness and resourcing in the Navy.

"This remarkable internet based toolset is quickly becoming the go-to application for the DoN" - Keith Vadas, ProModel President & CEO

ProModel Corporation, a leading predictive analytic BI software and services company, today announced that Commander, Naval Air Systems Command, VADM Dunaway has granted Accreditation to ProModel’s Naval Synchronization Toolset (NST) Airframe Inventory Management Module (AIM).

NST is an Internet-based software tool that provides the DoN with predictive analytic capabilities for the sourcing of aircraft to squadrons, squadrons to air wings and air wings to aircraft carriers. NST offers rapid visibility into the consequences on readiness and resourcing based upon the scheduling decisions related to individual aircraft, squadrons, carrier air wings, and carriers. The predictive planning capabilities of NST is being used to resource F/A-18 aircraft to squadrons and air wings to support carrier strike groups (CSGs), with the intent of extending the lives of older, currently deployed aircraft and plan transitions to future aircraft.

NST improves resource planning and management capabilities for assets through synchronization and efficient management of inventory. Before NST was developed, there were no convenient means to develop and implement schedules based upon operational demands of squadrons or carrier air wings against schedules for required airframe maintenance and/or training. Planning and managing were done manually rather than with a convenient automated tool. NST is the automated tool that allows operational planners to develop and visualize operational schedules and to synchronize them with airframe maintenance schedules and training schedules. Through COA creation and refinement, NST users can produce OP-20 Flight Hour Budget reports as well as POM Depot Budget forecasts for the next 30 years.

NST supports four major objectives:

  • Create the authoritative Master Aviation Plan (MAP) in a collaborative environment (Moving from spreadsheets)
  • Facilitate the efficient, synchronized development of authoritative operational, maintenance, and training schedules for the DoN’s operational units and their assets.
  • Facilitate the development of alternative courses of action (COAs) to explore the impacts of potential changes to operational commitments, training patterns and fiscal constraints.
  • Efficiently manage the Strike-Fighter inventory during the transition to the Joint Strike Fighter.

Ultimately, the use of NST enables key stakeholders within the Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE) to be informed before and during the POM budget process and make resourcing decisions which reflect cost-wise readiness paradigms.

ProModel Corporation serves the United States Federal Government and Department of Defense by providing innovative and adaptable custom and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies and professional services that help synchronize operational needs, mitigate risk and optimize resources.

“ProModel is proud of progress NST has made in the Navy. This remarkable internet based toolset is quickly becoming the go-to application for the DoN. We are very excited to continue working with the Navy and providing them with our innovative decision support technology,” said Keith Vadas, President and CEO, ProModel Corporation.
