An IT professional with more than 30 years of experience, Chris Hetman is a solutions architecture expert, currently responsible for developing and implementing CGI Federal’s Total Asset Visibility (TAV) platform.
In conducting military operations, understanding what assets are available and where they are is crucial. Pre-positioning assets requires that leaders be able to locate, track and utilize all of their resources in real time.
Modern warfare moves fast, so connecting combat personnel and their combat-ready equipment and supplies is a core mission necessity. Transforming the way each command manages its inventories, materiel distribution and asset visibility is vital to fulfilling its immediate mission. Equally important is ensuring that these assets can eventually be returned, maintained and/or replaced when necessary.
The Marine Corps Platform Integration Center (MCPIC) supports inventory tracking through digital tagging of mission-critical equipment, allowing system users to access real-time data by leveraging automated identification technology and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.
