Air Force Petroleum Office Centralizes
Hollywood, Florida March 8, 2005, STARLIMS Corporation, the leading global provider of
Laboratory Information Management Systems, (LIMS), today confirmed
selection by the US Air Force Petroleum Office (AFPET), as a
replacement for their legacy LIMS system. This latest announcement
was made at the STARLIMS User Group Meeting held in Orlando, FL.
earlier this month.
The US Air Force Petroleum
Office provides operations and maintenance guidance; technical,
scientific and engineering support to Air Force installations and
the fuels community worldwide. The Air Force has established
ongoing priorities to provide continuing support to contingency and
war fighting operations, create a plan of attack to resolve fuel
quality issues and transform the Air Force into a service control
point that is responsive to customers and strategically focused to
deliver state of the art support. This includes world wide quality
support to over 200 locations using six area laboratories
(Wright-Patterson AFB, OH; Cape Canaveral, FL; Vandenberg AFB, CA;
Mildenhall Air Base, United Kingdom; Kadena Air Base, Japan; and Al-Udeid
Air Base, Qatar).
“The current reshaping of
the Air Force from a “cold war” stationary deterrent force to a
mobile, rapid deployment force has greatly changed the way Air Force
entities conduct business. The US Air Force’s current legacy LIMS
system will not support its deployable mission requirements nor will
it provide timely, worldwide customer access to critical analysis
results. The Air Force is excited to be partnering with STARLIMS
and adapting their new Version 10 software to provide a fully
functional LIMS system which supports a worldwide customer and
laboratory structure and a deployed laboratory asset, all with
centrally controlled architecture.” commented Jeffrey Allen from the
Air Force Petroleum Office.
STARLIMS Version 10 unveiled at the recent STARLIMS User Group
Meeting in Orlando FL, is a true distributed application with an
extensible design capable of supporting a virtually unlimited number
of users connecting to the system via a local network or Internet.
From the end-user perspective STARLIMS Version 10 is a web
application, running inside the Internet Explorer browser and
offering a user experience far more advanced than any other
available web application on the market. The most advanced software
technology is employed comprising Microsoft .NET platform, XML UIs,
and Web Services, together with our widely distributed LIMS
application server. This technical infrastructure is powered by
proven LIMS business-logic and perfected by more than 15 years of
experience by STARLIMS Corp. analysts and engineers.
“STARLIMS is proud to be employing its extensive knowledge of LIMS
in the petroleum sector to fulfill the US Air Force’s vision of
providing worldwide laboratory information management support.”
stated Isaac Friedman, president & CEO of STARLIMS Corporation.
