Abstract:

This thesis presents the background, criteria, and baseline recommendations for a Microcircuit Technology in Logistics ApplicationRadio Frequency MITLARF proposal to support developing maintenance management doctrine. Its main thrust is a preliminary feasibility analysis of MITLARF to identify key issues with regard to maintenance operations within emerging Operational Maneuver From The Sea OMFTS concepts. This thesis surveys current requirements, information systems initiatives, testevaluation results, implementation issues, and technology tradeoffs. It offers alternatives to reliance on manual record keeping and frameworks for enhancing horizontal vertical information flows, explores several near real-time interactive decision making tools, and suggests doctrinal improvements through a fusion of procedural and high-tech approaches. This study is an outline for melding policy change with the state-of-the-art technology required to successfully support emerging Combat Service Support CSS operations.
