Leidos Antarctic Support Contract (ASC), the primary support contractor to the United States Antarctic Program (USAP), announced today that they have received the Best Maximo Mobility Program award at the 2021 MaximoWorld Conference in Orlando, FL for their work with the Interloc Solutions' Mobile Informer product to augment reliability centered maintenance procedures in Antarctica.

ORLANDO, FL -- Leidos Antarctic Support Contract (ASC), the primary support contractor to the United States Antarctic Program (USAP), announced today that they have received the Best Maximo Mobility Program award at the 2021 MaximoWorld Conference in Orlando, FL for their work with the Interloc Solutions' Mobile Informer product to augment reliability centered maintenance procedures in Antarctica.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs, as executive manager of the USAP, has contracted with Leidos ASC to provide operational and logistical support— including workstations, medical facilities, communications, transportation, shipping, emergency response, housing, food services, science support, and more— on a continent lacking infrastructure. The introduction of mobility has revolutionized how the USAP operates "the world's longest supply chain" and maintains its many assets. The mobility's capability to deliver uninterrupted functionality in an austere communications environment, and a secure, role-based, familiar interface designed for end-user success, enables ASC to securely experience Maximo on the highest, driest, windiest, emptiest, and coldest continent on the planet, where Wi-Fi is far from readily available.

"We're eager to continue utilizing our mobility solution to increase accuracy and reduce labor hours with our seasonal mobile workforce," commented Leidos ASC Maximo Systems Manager Paddy Douglas, emphasizing how Leidos ASC continues to enhance their Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) efficacy as mobility becomes the principal means of Maximo interaction.
