The U.S. Marine Corps has conducted an exercise at USMC Air Station in Yuma, Arizona, to test a Lockheed Martin-built prototype system for managing F-35 logistics and sustainment operations.

The Marine Corps tested the Operational Data Integrated Network aboard an F-35B squadron and saw the system support four additional flights following the initial deployment, DVIDShub reported Friday.

ODIN is meant to succeed the legacy Autonomic Logistics Information System that manages F-35 fleet readiness and sustainment activities.

The new system will have a smaller framework and a cloud-based architecture to support all variants of the F-35 fighter jet, according to the report.

Lt. Gen Eric Fick, program executive officer for F-35 Joint Program Office, said the ODIN effort builds on a partnership between Lockheed, Raytheon Technologies' Pratt & Whitney business, Naval Information Warfare Center, the 309th Software Engineering Group and the U.S. Air Force's Kessel Run software development unit.

Ellen Lord, undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment at the Department of Defense and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, first announced Lockheed's selection to develop ODIN in January.
