This thesis presents the background, criteria, and baseline recommendations for a Microcircuit Technology in Logistics Application/Radio Frequency (MITLA/RF) proposal to support developing maintenance management doctrine. Its main thrust is a preliminary feasibility analysis of MITLA/RF 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, test/evaluation 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.
