The MCB coordinated with the Air Force to combine data from the Single Mobility System and the Air Force's Global Air Transportation Execution System
to forecast equipment coming into theater.
After observing tactical and operational level units "build" their deployment data into various AIS such as the Transportation Coordinators' Automated Information for Movement System II (TC-AIMS II), the Automated Air Load Planning System (AALPS), the Global Air Transportation Execution System
(GATES), the Integrated Computerized Deployment System (ICODES), and many other AIS, it has become clear that while the majority of the data entered is correct, mistakes do occur resulting in skewed or missing data.
The team is currently heavily involved in the development of the Global Air Transportation Execution System
ocean movement application, the replacement to the World Wide Port System.
Transportation Command's Port Management Automation project, the Worldwide Port System (WPS) used by the Army's Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command will migrate into the Global Air Transportation Execution System
(GATES) used by the Air Force's Air Mobility Command.
In-transit information is data from the Global Transportation Network, which in turn gets its data from multiple sources such as Global Air Transportation Execution System
, Cargo Movement Operations System, Global Decision Support System, Global Freight Management, and DAAS.
Historical mission planning files and the Global Air Transportation Execution System
that is used to track mission data could provide some information about operational factors that affect mission payloads, but limitations associated with these data sources do not allow officials to determine whether DOD used aircraft capacity as efficiently as possible.
