Viewing technology as the springboard for future systems, the work in the Integrated Logistics Support community is paving the way to greater use of automated tools, higher operational availability and reliability, and an increased emphasis on diagnostics.

The event marks the first time in many years that ASNE has held an event in the Pacific Northwest, and this symposium will combine the presentation of several papers on timely topics, with opportunities for open discussion to foster idea exchange.
