The aviation community realized that SAMS--E would not support its maintenance requirements, so it developed a system specifically for aviators: Unit Level Logistics
This allows direct support-level computers and unit-level computers loaded with logistics software, such as the Unit Level Logistics
System (ULLS), the Battle Command Sustainment Support System (BCS3), and the Assessment Tool for Land Systems (ATLAS), to connect to a device that links the computer data to an outdoor, dish-shaped transceiver located nearby.
UNFORTUNATELY, TOO MAY SOLDIERS FAIL TO SEE COMPUTERS, ESPECIALLY UNIT LEVEL LOGISTICS
SYSTEM (ULLS) COMPUTERS, IN THE SAME LIGHT.
To explore this hypothesis, I collected data from the CALIBRE Integrated Logistics Analysis Program (ILAP) support office at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, and data from the 336th Transportation Group's Unit Level Logistics
System-Ground (ULLS-G) computer.
Unit Level Logistics
System computers suffered the most without the ability to use the new storage medium.
If your unit uses the Standard Property Book System-Revised (SPBS-R) or Unit Level Logistics
System S-4 (ULLS S-4), ask your property book officer to download a copy of your unit's hand receipt onto a MS-DOS 3 1/2-in disk.
Maintenance data, such as mileage, spare parts demands, and repair man-hours, are generated from Unit Level Logistics
SystemGround/Air (ULLS-G/A) input through the Standard Army Maintenance System (SAMS) and the Standard Army Retail Supply System (SARSS).
* the Unit Level Logistics
Ground database (ULLS-G)
Army units use the Unit Level Logistics
System, the Standard Army Retail Supply System, and the Standard Army Ammunition System.
Both the CSSB and the BSB are enabled with visibility through Standard Army Management Information Systems (STAMIS) such as PBUSE, SARSS-1, SAAS-MOD and SAMS, the Unit Level Logistics
System-Aviation Enhanced (ULLS-AE), and the Movement Tracking System (MTS).
They were doing so despite the potential of the systems at their disposal--the Unit Level Logistics
System-Ground (ULLS-G), Standard Army Maintenance System (SAMS)-1 and -2, and Standard Army Retail Supply System (SARSS)--to transfer data by file transfer protocol (FTP).
Meeting the established BCT standard should not be an issue when the Unit Level Logistics
System (ULLS) and SAMS are collocated with the shop officer.
