In recent years, the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) has experienced rapid development and has been frequently deployed on the battlefield. The UAS for the export of military trade in China, represented by the CH-4 Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAS, has been equipped in the air forces of many countries in the Middle East. When the UAS is deployed and operated, it produces a large amount of data and information of Integrated Logistical Support (ILS). Recording, processing, and applying this information and data are important contents of ILS. At present, the information and data sources of ILS are various and difficult to manage. Also, it is difficult to effectively integrate and use, so it cannot effectively analyze and evaluate equipment performance and support efficiency nor provide insight into the market demand and profit model. According to the requirements of information and data management for ILS of UAS under the military trade model, this paper puts forward an information data management platform for ILS of UAS. Firstly, the design ideas and principles of the platform is determined. Then, a general framework of the platform is established. Finally, the design contents and requirements are provided, with a detailed description of the hardware layer, software layer, data layer, function layer, and interface layer. The content of this paper can help the research and development of the information data management platform for ILS of UAS.
