The CALS program is a strategy to institute within DoD an industry and integrated "system of systems" to create, transmit, and use technical information in digital form to design, manufacture, and support weapon systems and equipment, and apply communication and computer technology to acquisition and support of major weapon systems and information systems. CALS focuses on integrating automation between the DoD contractor and the DoD. This is a program to acquire, manage, access, and distribute weapon systems information more efficiently. This includes all acquisition, design, manufacturing, and logistics information. CALS focuses on an increase in reliability, maintainability, and availability through integration of automation systems. In addition, CALS seeks improvement of the productivity, quality, and timeliness of logistics support while again reducing costs.
