Hardware and software support are similar between an OMS Administrator and an ALIS System Administrator. Configuration of OMS hardware, such as the OMS WS, may require ALIS System Administrators to configure the workstation’s hardware with ALIS software prior to an OMS Administrator configuring any OMS software tools.

For ongoing support, an OMS Administrator may rely on an ALIS System Administrator to manage server storage for mission planning or post flight debrief data.
