La Jolla, CA – October 19, 2009
Miro Technologies announced today that the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) has selected GOLDesp™ (Enterprise Service Platform) as the central logistics application to replace Autolog as part of EMDAD, a new turn-key, state of the art, network-centric logistics project. GOLDesp will provide a fully integrated maintenance and supply solution for all RSAF fixed wing and rotary aircraft, and also extends to flight simulators, armaments, and components such as ejection seats.
“We are delighted and honored to be selected by the RSAF after a deep and rigorous selection process,” declared Vincent Monteparte, President and CEO of Miro Technologies. “We have a strong commitment to knowledge transfer as part of EMDAD, just as we have done with our many other customers. Training will form a central part of our implementation strategy with everything from front line training to deep level education in our GOLD Academy. Miro is committed to a long term presence in Saudi Arabia and the region and will be setting up a Riyadh office to further develop business in the region.”
GOLDesp will enable the RSAF to modernize its logistics support for all weapon systems and provides a unique de-centralized capability across all bases with automated data distribution for centralized HQ visibility. GOLDesp already fits a majority of military business processes, thus minimizing customization and facilitating rapid implementation. GOLDesp also offers the ability to integrate with MILS supply messaging protocol, thus enabling seamless communications with weapon system prime contractors. The GOLDesp solution will provide the RSAF with instant total asset visibility, enabling centralized decision-making capabilities using up-to-the-minute information about the location and status of all tracked assets and aircraft. The EMDAD project will deliver new technology like radio frequency identification or RFID tagging for material, speeding up the handling of parts.
GOLDesp is based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) concept that makes integration much easier and provides future scalability, essentially future-proofing the EMDAD project. The system will integrate with all the weapon systems ground support applications, providing wingtip-to-warehouse total integration of electronic data and improving efficiency and effectiveness of the RSAF total logistics concept.
