AMLID, a four-phased project, will facilitate direct communication between Army and Marine Corps logistics systems, thereby reducing the logistics demand on C2 systems.
The AMLID use-case scenarios address likely threat scenarios.
Upon completion, AMLID will have developed consolidated mission threads for petroleum, oil, and lubricants; ammunition; and repair parts; as well as distribution in-transit visibility and logistics situational awareness.
AMLID team stakeholders envision Phase III to be the development of a fielding plan for the logistics interoperability functionality that was developed, blueprinted, and demonstrated during Phases I and II.
AMLID is a major initiative of the Army's Common Logistics Operating Environment Program and is aligned with objectives of the Marine Corps' Logistics Modernization program and Joint Forces Command's Joint Interoperability and Data Dissemination Strategy.
Architecturally, AMLID supports both the Army's and the Marine Corps' logistics architectures and seeks to provide a flexible support construct that integrates various logistics systems across Service boundaries.
AMLID identifies gaps in process or system interoperability where additional work may be necessary in order to support the development of a composite architecture (the Marine Corps' Logistics Operational Architecture and the Army Integrated Logistics Architecture) necessary for joint interoperability.
AMLID does not purport to be a final solution in resolving interoperability issues between the Army and Marine Corps or other DoD services and supporting government agencies; however, it is the focused application of technology solutions to improve the efficiency of Army-Marine Corps operations as part of a joint force.
