AACE has 25 years of demonstrable experience delivering Through Life Support (TLS) services and the disciplines of Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) Acquisition Management and In-Service Equipment Support, for both Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) Delivery Teams and Defence Industry Contractors.

We have a broad range of TLS experience due to our military background and civilian experience on new acquisition and in-service land, sea and air programmes as well as developing compliant ILS solutions for Information Technology programmes. Our work packages can offer our customers a single ILS expert for small tasks or teams of ILS specialists integrated within Delivery or Industry Teams, over sustained periods.

AACE ILS and Equipment Support Managers are fully conversant with current ILS and supportability methodology, processes and task element outputs. They are experienced professionals that can design, develop and help meet your ILS Programme requirements and deliverables supporting the output of integrated support tasks in any of the domain variants.

AACE ensure current policy is applied and tailored to all DE&S equipment, service, system or system of service procurement. We are fully conversant with the ILS requirements for MOD projects (Defence Standard 00-600), the Knowledge in Defence (KiD) and the Defence Logistics Framework (DLF). We use our experience in developing practical ILS and TLS disciplines to maximise the operational availability of equipment at an optimal lifecycle cost. The re-framing of ILS to Integrated Product Support (IPS) and ASD S-Series IPS Specifications is in transition within the MOD but is in-use within Industry. IPS aims to improve interoperability, maximise data usage, be utilised throughout lifecycle and improve operational readiness.

Our staff are knowledgeable in respect of DE&S and Defence Industry ways of working and practiced in collaborating in the delivery of their work with the associated Operational Delivery, Project Management, Engineering, Safety, Commercial, Finance and Assurance Teams. AACE consistently deliver high quality products, on time and are always flexible in our approach to meet the changing requirements or priorities of our customers.

A selection of our core deliverables includes:

The AACE team exceeded expectations in the level of support provided, showing expert knowledge and experience of wider DE&S processes, coupled with a detailed understanding of the end-to-end acquisition cycle. The quality of their deliverables has ensured that the ILS team has hit all assurance milestones ahead of schedule
