Northrop Grumman has embraced digital sustainment tools and engineering methods in efforts to help defense customers maintain systems that support critical missions.

The company said Monday it uses a digital logistics environment that integrates tools, practices and applications needed to manage key sustainment elements of mission systems.

DLE is intended to generate real-time information that sustainment teams can use to edit digital models as needed and allows maintenance planners to define policy and certification requirements based on virtual representations, Northrop noted.

“We’re making investments in innovative technology and digital sustainment tools to enhance operational efficiency, forecasting, performance and affordability — and ultimately improve mission and warfighter readiness,” said Kenn Todorov, vice president and general manager of sustainment and modernization at Northrop.

The company is developing digital twins of a test aircraft platform to support development, modification and demonstration of new systems across multiple programs.
