Career officer with 19 years' service to oversee acquisition, integration of logistics technologies

The Army has appointed Lt. Col. Cary Ferguson as the Product Manager for Joint–Automatic Identification Technology (PM J-AIT).

Ferguson will direct the organization responsible for acquisition and integration of the Army’s automatic identification technology (AIT) and radio frequency identification (RFID) equipment and services, Army officials said June 30.

Ferguson has served in the military for 19 years. Most recently he was assistant project manager and military deputy for the Project Manager Global Combat Support System-Army at Fort Lee, Va.

The PM J-AIT is the Defense Department’s principal organization overseeing AIT and RFID. As such, it oversees programs and technologies that are critical to military logistics such as global asset tracking, Web-based radio frequency in-transit visibility services, and life-cycle support services. The PM J-AIT also services as a point of contact for acquisition support and technical expertise for joint services, federal agencies, NATO and coalition partners.

The PM J-AIT reports to the Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems at Fort Belvoir, Va.
