Department of Defense In-Transit Visibility–A Layered Approach

Keynote Session
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is using a layered approach to achieve visibility of equipment and supplies moving worldwide in support of warfighters. The DoD must be able to operate anywhere in the world, and tracking shipments is essential to efficiently and effectively carrying out that mission. Automatic identification technology (AIT), including RFID, is a key enabler in gathering timely and accurate DoD in-transit and asset-visibility information. Rear Admiral Baucom will share current AIT implementations and requirements. Learn how AIT data fits into the layered approach, along with human-entered information, and how robust information systems are essential to giving warfighters the complete picture of shipments in transit.
