Abstract
The DoD investment in C3 equipment would indicate that intransit data is indeed available to transportation decision makers throughout the system. But no single system can be relied upon to pinpoint the precise location of a particular cargo item, or a particular passenger. Voice relays using unreliable HF radios from the aircrew, or telephone patches from the point of embarkation are still relied upon to track a misdirected cargo item or missing passenger. AMC is re-thinking all aspects of its airlift business resulting in new emphasis on "customer satisfaction". AMC needs to track, and make available to its customers, the real time status and location of planned, intransit, and delivered cargo and passenger movements, especially in electronic form to facilitate data exchange with intermodal transportation systems. Six Sigma Analytics, Inc. proposes to investigate the force movement information requirements among the various command and control (C2) nodes within the Defense transportation shipping system. The overall objective of the Phase I effort is to design a top level information strategy plan (ISP) to provide the framework in which to consolidate force movement data and correlate AMC C2 functions with specific data requirements. This top level ISP will provide a roadmap to improve the tracking of AMC's deliverables--airlifted cargo and passengers.
