This effort establishes the feasibility of implementing telematics systems into theUnited States Marine Corps’ decision-making process in order to increase its operational reach and overall effectiveness. It is based around a qualitative case study evaluation of commercially implemented telematics. Telematics, as defined by Fleetmatics, is the integrated use of telecommunications combined with information and technology communication systems used to achieve improved operational capabilities while creating a more effective and efficient workforce. This research was done through numerous interviews with a variety of personnel who use telematics. The information is then partitioned and analyzed using a systems engineering framework utilizing a human systems integration methodology. This analysis acts as a framework to outline best practices in metering and monitoring. Once established, it is applied to the Marine Corps to determine a feasible way to implement similar technologies on its ground vehicles. This study prescribes policies for the successful use of telematics systems in the Marine Corps that will make it a more fuel-efficient fighting force. As a result, the Marine Corps extends its operational reach, improves its warfighting capability, and reduces the risk to the warfighter.
