Project Summary
The Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification Technology (PM J-AIT) provides a single point of contact for procurement and technical expertise across the suite of AIT-enabling technologies. This supports focused logistics, total asset visibility (TAV) and the integration of global supply chains. PM J-AIT provides automated near real-time accurate data collection, aggregation, and retrieval technologies and services that enhance information management systems. PM J-AIT manages the Radio Frequency In-Transit Visibility (RF-ITV) system for DoD, NATO, and Coalition Partners in support of expeditionary logistics and the joint war fight.

Description
PM J-AIT is the DoD procurement activity for AIT and radio frequency identification (RFID) products and manages the worldwide RF-ITV infrastructure.  PM J-AIT awards and administers AIT/RFID contracts and ensures compliance with information assurance and net worthiness requirements. PM J-AIT assists in other AIT/RFID disciplines to include hazards of electromagnetic radiation to ordnance (HERO) certification and frequency supportability.



RF-ITV is a fielded capability that provides support to commanders and logisticians in all branches of the armed forces, NATO and Coalition Partners. This worldwide network of more than 5,600 read and write stations and associated equipment in 39 countries is used for tracking RFID tagged shipments in the military supply chain. RF-ITV uses wireless technology to capture and pass information about resources at rest or in motion in the supply chain. RFID applications span the length of the DoD distribution supply chain to include:
*shipping - pick, pack, load, and tag containers and automatically forward data

*receipt - automatic update of inventory and validation upon arrival

*storage/issue - inventory and yard management

*transportation - movement and consolidation for trans-shipment

*nodal tracking; maintenance - movement tracking of parts, components and assemblies

*disposal - hazardous material tracking


Total tracking solutions for DoD include:
*Complete program lifecycle support

*Interoperable/compatible with DoD logistics systems

3.4 Logistics Information Systems (LIS), Fort Lee, VA
Web site: https://www.pmlis.lee.army.mil
Phone: (804) 734-7665

Project Manager Logistics Information Systems (PM LIS) supports the Army's enterprise integration objectives by developing, testing, training, deploying, and sustaining the most cost-efficient and capable logistics management and information systems available that enhance the Army supply chain and support the Warfighter.

PM LIS is responsible for numerous logistics management systems throughout the acquisition lifecycle of technology development, system development, production, deployment, and operations and support.

On 2 December 2008 a meeting was held in which PEO EIS, Army G4, Army Material Command (AMC), and the Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM) approved a two-phase transition of the PM LIS operational mission beginning in January 2009.  It was agreed that over the next 10 months, management of PM LIS, the Army Automated Logistics Systems, and two supporting activities would transition from PEO EIS (PM LIS) to SEC-Lee.  This transition is projected to be completed by October 2009.

Organizations within LIS include-
*Movement Tracking System (MTS)

*Tactical Logistics Systems (TLS)


3.4.1 Movement Tracking System (MTS), Fort Lee, VA
Product Manager Movement Tracking System (PM MTS) is the keystone to bringing logistics into the digitized battlefield of the 21st century.  It is a low-cost solution designed for the Army and its logistics vehicle operators to track the location of vehicles, provide greater visibility of in-transit logistics assets, communicate with vehicle operators and redirect missions on a worldwide, near real-time basis.  MTS is a mobile satellite two-way messaging system that is totally wireless, from MTS-equipped vehicles to system control stations.  Communication between the system components via commercial satellites has enabled units to send and receive traffic over the horizon, anywhere and at anytime.

The system is used to support missions throughout the full spectrum of military operations from peacetime to war.  Through the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, RFID technology and satellite communications, MTS provides the means for logistics commanders and Combat Support/Combat Service Support (CS/CSS) operations sections to exercise assured positive movement control of assets across the theater of operations.  The system serves as a crucial link between maneuvering logistics Soldiers and logistics command and control cells.  In the future, the system will also possess an automatic vehicle diagnostics and prognostics capability, along with other features that support greater in-transit visibility. 

3.4.2 Tactical Logistics Systems (TLS), Fort Lee, VA
Product Director Tactical Logistics Systems (PD TLS) provides the lifecycle management of all functional and technical aspects of the current Army logistics information systems in a manner consistent with the policies and principles articulated in DoD directives. These systems include the automation and sustainment of ammunition, maintenance, supply, property accountability and finance.  TLS manages a suite of Army logistics programs and products that provide the key logistics information technology enablers in bridging to the Single Army Logistics Enterprise.  Our focus is to ensure Soldiers are prepared to use our newly deployed systems and are confident in their effectiveness.
