General Dynamics to Support U.S. Army Automated Manifest System
FAIRFAX, Va. - General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Product Manager - Joint-Automatic Identification Technology office to support its Automated Manifest System Tactical (AMS TAC). The total potential value of this contract if all options are exercised is $4 million over five years.

The AMS TAC is a shipping manifest and database management system designed to automate standard Department of Defense (DoD) transportation and supply distribution functions by integrating automatic identification technologies, including optical memory cards; radio frequency tags; and barcode scanning and printing capabilities. The AMS TAC is fully integrated with DoD logistics, supply and in-transit visibility/total asset visibility systems. Under this contract, General Dynamics will provide AMS TAC maintenance, user support, software enhancements, information technology services, integration services, system fielding and installation, and training at Army locations throughout the world.

'Instant, automated access to information about container and pallet content data is critical for cost-effective and responsive supply management - particularly during contingency and wartime conditions,' said Zannie Smith, senior vice president of Army Solutions for General Dynamics Information Technology. 'We are proud to leverage our identification technology expertise to support the AMS TAC and further facilitate DoD manifest activities at more than 100 locations worldwide.'

General Dynamics has provided technology support and services to the AMS TAC for 15 years. AMS TAC combines user-friendly software and state-of-the-art hardware to facilitate tracking of shipping containers in transit. The system uses advanced identification and tracking technologies to provide visibility of shipping container and box content data to the item level and automate standard DoD transportation and supply functions.
