Telemetry (SBIR Phase III)
Telemetry provides end-to-end visibility of Marine Corps Logistics activities, augmenting data from the current Authoritative Data Sources (GCSS-MC and IGC) with advanced predictive analytics such as estimated trip duration through convoy planning and predicting air movement impacts for distribution activities to provide decision makers with real-time insights into the Supply Chain. Telemetry uses predictive route analytics to define shipment windows and alerts stakeholders of off track and off schedule shipments. It geographically logs arrival and departure from specified locations to validate time-definite deliveries (TDDs), accountability of controlled assets, and chain of custody. Further, it makes information available to the Marine in the environment they need it, whether that is a laptop in the Command Operation Center (COC), a desktop stateside, or a trusted handheld device in the warehouse, with minimal Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities (DOTMLPF) overhead.
Telemetry is a Government-funded solution as it was developed under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The initial Phase I research was performed under Contract Number N00014-16-P-1001. The prototype of Telemetry was developed and tested under Contract Number N68335-17-C-0054.
