dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an analysis and evaluation of Microcircuit Technology in Logistics Applications. (MITLA/RF) Under the MITLA initiative the Department of Defense (DoD) is testing, evaluating, and developing asset tracking devices to increase readiness and responsiveness while reducing the overall costs of providing logistic support. The underlying goal of the MITLA initiative is to increase readiness through improved asset visibility on a global scale. The primary focus of this thesis is to underscore the current mission requirements and the need for introducing MITLA/RF into military logistic operations. A background analysis of the capabilities and ftmctionality of the system components is presented. Strong emphasis is placed on the digital wireless network and its role in the expeditious environment of military logistics. Automated logistic system interoperability, migration and the technology to dollar tradeoff is discussed. This study provides insight that if properly used, will help logistics policy makers introduce 8 sound high-tech solution to successfully track and support Marine Corps logistic efforts well into the next century.en_US
