Developed a Joint/Coalition Logistics Decision Support Tool for DARPA to provide information on U.S. and Coalition military logistics units and key asset items. Upgraded several other DARPA Logistics Decision Support Tools to provide increased Logistics user functionality.

Developed a Logistics Information Management system for USJFCOM (formerly USACOM). The system uses data "pushed" and "pulled" from service logistics centers and DLA to provide visibility of the logistics assets that USACOM needs to monitor. NSNs are linked to their nomenclatures and RICs are linked to their descriptive locations to provide a user-friendly view of the status of assets. The capabilities of Logistics, Medical, and Chemical/Biological/Radiological military units from all four services were researched and input into the system’s database.

Developed a Joint property control system for USACOM. This system meets all service property control system requirements and interfaces with existing service systems, but provides the flexibility needed in a joint environment.

Reviewed and assisted in the development of Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs) for U.S. Navy systems. A very important part of the ECP preparation and review process is the identification of logistics impacts, which includes required training, changes to technical manuals, the Planned Maintenance System (PMS), and supply support in terms of Allowance Parts Lists (APLs) for On-Board Repair Parts (OBRPs) and Maintenance Assistance Modules (MAMs).

Completed the design and installation of a fiber-optic/AUI LAN and database management system to support spare parts, SHIPALTS, and other submarine logistical functions for SUBLANT. The LAN includes the file server containing the technical maintenance database presently used by SUBLANT, a communications server providing support for a modem pool used for outside communications, and a print server.

Developed the networking design and requirements for the U.S. Army Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support (CALS) system, the predecessor to JCALS. This system consisted of IBM mainframes, DEC VAX minicomputers, AT&T communications processors, IBM compatible PCs, Apple Macintoshes, Sun workstations, and Intergraph CAD/CAM workstations, connected by various local area and wide area networks.

Provided support to the U.S. Army Operational Test and Evaluation Agency (OTEA) for the limited operational test of logistics supportablility of the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS). Based upon the test concept of the JTIDS test, provided a survey of available logistics models/simulations applicable to representing the planned test, identifying limitations of each with an outline of modifications and level of effort required to modify each of the models/simulations recommended. Upon OTEA's selection of models from the recommended list, prepared detailed recommendations on models with focus on how the environment of the test site was to be treated in the models, and how the formulation of model inputs were derivable from the measurements planned in the test.

Also in support of OTEA, worked with a subcontractor to develop and prepare measures of effectiveness to support OTEA's operational evaluation of the Maneuver Control System (MCS), which included reliability, maintainability, availability, and other logistics areas. This required a thorough review of MCS issues and criteria in order to develop the MOEs required to satisfy decisionmaker issues. The evaluation methodology was applied to the operational evaluations of manual C2 support systems and MCS, with analysis of performance data collected in field evaluations, and the preparation of performance assessment reports based on the analyses of operational data.
