Supplemented with additional radiation meters received from AMEDDC&S and USAPHC Veterinary Services, the program provided daily radiological surveillance monitoring of up to 68 different animal and food related facilities and conveyances on 14 different installations for all military service branches within USFJ, with over 7,000 readings as of July 2011.
The results were rapid responses to USFJ and JDVC to provide assurances that contaminated products had not reached USFJ installations.
Within 15 days of 3/11, we had finished our initial evaluation with additional suspension recommendations, and worked with USAPHC Veterinary Services, DoD Veterinary Services Activity, FDA, USDA [US Department of Agriculture], ASD/HA [Assistant Secretary of Defense/Health Affairs], USFJ, etc, with the result being an historical ALFOODACT [all food activities alert] 004-2011 issued on April 1, 2011, with suspension of DoD food procurement from 13 different prefectures, with a few individual plant exceptions, due to concerns of compromised food safety from radiological, seismic activity damage, and resupply/transportation or power outages resulting in potential microbiological, chemical, physical, or radiological contamination.
After establishing maritime surface and air watch teams in the Bilateral Joint Operations Command Center (BJOCC), CTF 76 inserted assistant chiefs of staff into USFJ
directorates in order to augment their capabilities and assist in FHA/DR planning and execution.
Despite massive and swift growth, USFJ maintained a forward-leaning information assurance posture by using operational risk management and daily resource requirement board meetings to assess the IT needs of the command and the most prudent method of satisfying the requirements.
Additionally, Joint Support Force head-quarters was manned with personnel from all the services, which was essential for the rapid growth of communication capabilities for USFJ headquarters, to support air, land and maritime operations.
With an uncertain capacity for the USFJ headquarters infrastructure to accommodate additional personnel and the possibility for rolling blackouts, PACOM's Deployable Joint Command and Control core, based out of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, was requested.
The initial "procurement through production" implementation of BMC BladeLogic took only 2 months, enabling USFJ to receive significant time to value while preparing for the CCRI.
As a result of partnering with BMC Software, USFJ will be able to automate the process to audit and remediate the state of compliance of its highly sophisticated and unique networks in its continuous support of the Warfighter.
A large number of outside augmentees from a variety of organizations joined permanently stationed USFJ personnel.
