Adoption of Emerging Sustainment Technologies – Phase III

NCMS Project #: 141074

Problem: Designs for standardization, acquiring, employing and effectively identifying and managing IT components (how/where they are ultimately deployed) while being able to quickly and accurately assess effectiveness and impact maintenance or sustainment requirements is an issue that both industry and DOD face.  Understanding how to best embrace emerging technologies and applying them successfully to challenges without further exasperating current problems or driving up costs is critical.  

Benefit: Evaluating this work with an eye to logistics and related IT challenges provides an appropriate venue to measure success.  A vision and strategy to understand the optimum means to employ and deploy these exciting and game changing technologies will be shared to benefit U.S. companies and organizations.

Solution/Approach: In Phase III, the final phase of this project, DOD will assess and demonstrate compact and affordable Peer-to-Peer Integrated Situational Awareness Communication System(s) that with minimal infrastructure requirements, provides global coverage, User Defined Operational Picture (UDOP)/dashboards and a searchable Business Intelligence (BI) database capable of hosting deployed sustainment solutions in a disconnected environment.
