GCN : September 2013
10 GCN SEPTEMBER 2013 • GCN.COM The U.S. Navy operates one of the world's largest business enterprises, a oating of ce park whose equipment and personnel must be available to be shipped anywhere in the world on a moment's notice. Recently it developed a Web-based tool that helps logistics planners tighten Navy supply lines by identifying unused space on the thousands of military and commercial ights, and ships travelling the globe any given day. The Transportation Exploitation Tool (TET), whose development was spon- sored by the Of ce of Naval Research, is a cloud-based software tool that helps speed the delivery of spare parts, personnel and other supplies via the quickest available route. ONR provides science and technology support to the Navy and Marine Corps. "This system is truly revolutionary," ONR program manager Bob Smith told Armed with Science, a Defense Department blog. "TET uses advances in technology to provide outstanding optimization of available ights and ship routes, saving our logisticians enormous amounts of time --- and that can literally mean saving lives." The tool, developed at the Naval Sup- ply Systems Command (NAVSUP), has saved the Navy more than $30 million in transportation costs to date, an amount the service estimates will grow to $200 million over 10 years, the blog reported. The search software enables a plan- ner to enter a description of the cargo that needs to be shipped and where it's going. Then, "Expedia-like," it shows all the potential routes where space is available and offers recommendations on the most ef cient options. Without the tool, managers had to search multiple databases via multiple interfaces. This often resulted in the need for additional ights to be booked and long delays, according to the blog post. The TET tool was developed by sev- eral ONR teams, led by NAVSUP and including the Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism De- partment, SwampWorks and Technol- ogy Insertion Program for Savings. Vice Adm. Philip Cullom, deputy chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics, said the tool addresses a critical need for the Navy. Last month, Cullom presented Greg Butler, who led the development of the tool at NAVSUP, with the 2012 Adm. Stan Arthur Award, which recognizes excellence in logistics planning. "There has been a real need to get things to the eet faster and more ef- ciently," Butler said. • Navy's Expedia-style app 'revolutionary' for logistics BY PAUL McCLOSKEY Source: Fiberlink Communications Corp.
