28 Apr 11. A Lockheed Martin developed, web-based capability for US Army readiness reporting, force registration, mobilization, and force projection planning has completely replaced the legacy system that previously provided this information. Lockheed Martin’s Defense Readiness Reporting System-Army (DRRS-A) has replaced the Army Status of Resources and Training System (ASORTS) component within the Global Command and Control System-Army. ASORTS had been in use since 1996.
“DRRS-A provides readiness reporting under high operational tempo conditions that are inherent with overseas contingency operations,” said Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR Systems with Lockheed Martin’s IS&GS-Defense. “By retiring legacy systems and supplying web enabled applications and services, we’re giving our major Combatant Commands new tools to support their current and future fight.”
Created to track unit status information, DRRS-A improves the Army’s ability to execute its part of the joint and combatant commanders’ plans. Through DRRS-A, planners at the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Headquarters Army Staff, Com
