The Royal Navy and Royal Air Force upload information about F-35 aircraft status onto the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) system. This system can be then accessed by the F-35 Hybrid Product Support Integration (HPSI) office, which is a joint Lockheed Martin and US Department of Defence (DoD) body, with the goal of supporting F-35 readiness and maximising maintainability.

The data cannot be accessed until seven days after it is uploaded.
