Our History With the U.S. Government

Since 1993, the Hazardous Material Management System has been deployed throughout the Department of Defense with a customer base that spans the U.S. and Japan, including the Department of the Navy, U.S. Army, NASA, DLA, and the U.S. Marine Corps.

Once DLA took over HMMS in 2015, they partnered with Sphera to implement new application technologies under the program including Hazardous Materials Information Resource Management System (HMIRS), Hazardous Waste Disposition (HWD) and Performance Oriented Packaging (POP). These applications comprise the portfolio of hazardous materials management application technologies developed and maintained by Sphera and offered through DLA today.

Sphera has been a trusted Defense Logistics Agency Information Operations and DLA Logistics Operations partner for almost 30 years, with software solutions that help the combat support agency meet its hazardous materials and hazardous waste management objectives. The HMMS Program Management Office manages the portfolio of applications that the DLA manages for itself and its customers.
