Project Summary
The Army Human Resource System (AHRS) is a suite of systems to manage accountability, strength accounting, and personnel.

The Product Manager AHRS provides the Warfighter with a state of the art, cost effective, standardized and interoperable human resource solution that supports strategic and tactical management of Soldiers in a suite of global, networked, interactive, accurate military personnel systems. 

AHRS will transition selected AHRS functions to the Defense Integrated Military Human Resource System (DIMHRS), while continuing to develop and operate those components which complement DIMHRS. AHRS is a system of systems providing the tools to locate, manage, and serve the Soldier - anywhere in the world. 

Products and Services:
Deployed Theater Accountability Software (DTAS), the world's first enterprise-wide Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) personnel accountability system, provides near real-time data on individual personnel status, unit strengths and deployment history.  DTAS is a client-server application that allows tactical units uninterrupted access to their data, while still updating higher headquarters when communications are available.  DTAS has a Web-enabled component for Theater/Command level personnel to manage units and analyze the data.  This visibility is vital in determining the war fighting capability of the Army and subordinate commands within a specific theater.  DTAS can provide commanders and personnel specialists with near real-time accountability of deployed military personnel, civilians, contractors and foreign nationals in Theater by name, social security number, unit, location and day.  It consists of an enterprise server suite, theater server suite(s), and the unit mobile system(s).  It can operate under battlefield communications environments with limited bandwidth, intermittent connectivity or within operational constraints while disconnected.

The DTAS Mobile User System hierarchy extends theater level command down to tactical battalions and separate companies, using each unit's existing computer infrastructure linked to theater.  Each mobile system reports on unit personnel and synchronizes with the theater server suite.  The theater suite provides deployment history data to the enterprise suite.  The enterprise suite interfaces with numerous personnel management systems to provide DTAS with descriptive personnel data, eliminating the need for duplicative data entry.

All Soldiers, plus select DoD civilians in the Central Command (CENTCOM) Area of Operations are being tracked in DTAS.  DTAS is expanding into the continental United States. 

Tactical Personnel System (TPS) is a stand-alone portable system providing essential  personnel functionality to support a commander's tactical decision-making process by creating a deployable “go to war” personnel strength automated file.  TPS functionality provides soldier accountability, personnel manifesting, jump manifesting, and task force and crew building.  Units manifest arriving/departing individuals in TPS before arrival or departure.  TPS has the ability to export a Soldier manifest file as input to the DTAS allowing mass Soldier import at arrival in theater at a port of debarkation.

The Electronic Military Personnel Office (eMILPO) system is a web-based single database providing real-time update capability, used by the entire active army personnel community to manage all active, mobilized reserve, and National Guard Soldiers.  eMILPO provides commanders with a web-based, interactive, and accurate military personnel system that performs strength accounting, personnel services, personnel accountability, reassignment information, promotions, reserve component accounting, and Personnel Tempo (PERSTEMPO).  eMILPO provides information used by over forty other Army and DoD systems including DTAS, DEERS, ITAPDB, TOPMIS, and EDAS.  eMILPO's MyERB module allows every active enlisted Soldier to view his or her record online from anywhere in the world.  eMILPO's reporting and analysis tools allow commanders and staff at all levels to determine unit personnel readiness, OPTEMPO, and current unit status.  eMILPO is implemented on the DoD unclassified but sensitive internet protocol router network with single sign-on access through the AHRS web portal via Army Knowledge Online.

2.7 Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4), Fort Detrick, MD
Web site:
Phone: (301) 619-7858

Project Summary
Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) integrates, fields and supports a medical information management system for Army tactical medical forces, enabling a comprehensive, lifelong electronic medical record for all Service members, and enhancing medical situational awareness for operational commanders. By accomplishing this mission, MC4 is providing the Army's solution to Presidential and Congressional objectives, set-forth by Title 10 in 1997, which called for a medical tracking system for all deployed Service members.

MC4 is a ruggedized system of systems containing medical software packages fielded to deployed medical forces throughout the combat zone. Comprised of joint software, commercial and government-off-the-shelf products, MC4 provides the tools needed to record and transfer critical medical data from the foxhole to the U.S.

Over the past year, MC4 has helped improve the quality of medical data captured on the battlefield and laid the foundation for improved medical information management where it counted most - on the battlefield. By committing onsite, embedded MC4 training and support resources, deploying key system upgrades and creating the first electronic medical recording (EMR) best practices initiative on the battlefield, MC4 enabled a gateway for more complete, accurate medical information flowing from the battlefield to the U.S.

The standardization of recording medical information via MC4 systems would soon go global in 2008, creating a harmonized effort in using the systems to aid medical care throughout 13 countries in Southwest Asia (SWA), Europe and Egypt. The Department of Defense championed the expanded use of MC4 to the U.S. Air Force, and by May 2008, MC4 fully equipped 18 Air Force facilities in SWA with MC4 systems and personnel, while MC4 continued to field, train and support Army, Navy and Special Operations Forces units worldwide. MC4, once an Army-only, Operation Iraq Freedom-only electronic medical recording initiative officially transformed into a joint mission in the Global War on Terror.

Deployed medical forces use the MC4 system to gain quick, accurate access to patient histories and forward casualty resuscitation information. The system also provides units with automated tools facilitating patient tracking, medical reporting and medical logistical support. Meanwhile, combatant commanders worldwide use the MC4 system to access medical surveillance information, resulting in enhanced medical situational awareness.

Most importantly, MC4 is helping deployed Service members. By equipping deployed medical units with automated resources, MC4 helps ensure Service members have a secure, accessible, lifelong electronic medical record - which results in better-informed healthcare providers and easier access to VA medical benefits.

MC4 was first deployed for contingency operations in 2003 and has since fielded more than 30,000 systems to all combat support hospitals and 200 medical treatment facilities in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. MC4 has also trained more than 35,000 users and continues to provide 24-7 global support via its helpdesk, region support offices and technical support teams throughout the combat zone and the U.S. Since 2003, MC4 has facilitated the capture of more than 10 million electronic health records, making MC4 the most widely-used, comprehensive IM/IT medical system on the battlefield.
