Traction to provide Defense logs

Department of Defense

The Defense Department selected the Traction TeamPage software as part of an initiative to accelerate communication within the DOD Test and Evaluation programs.

The Rapid Acquisition Incentive-Net Centricity (RAI-NC) pilot will use the Traction application as a platform for secure Web log communication. This RAI-NC initiative is a 5-year program led by the Navy and scheduled to run from 2004 through 2008.

Defense officials hope the initiative will identify technologies that speed up net-centricity and can be scaled across the entire department.

RAI-NC's pilot will use TeamPage to create a communications hub for DOD's Test and Evaluation programs. With the Web logs, DOD officials will be able to identify field-test participants based on program need, plan delivery and installation of test items, brief field-test participants, receive questions from field-test participants, monitor results and maintain a constant log of significant events.

"Enterprise Web log technology can be quickly and inexpensively deployed to create an instant, secure communication hub using the Internet that already connects program managers, project experts, contractors, sponsors and warfighters," said Greg Lloyd, president of Traction Software Inc.

The Web log pilot is one of 12 projects that DOD has selected for funding in fiscal 2004. This particular project will be led by the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, with additional participation from the Office of Naval Research, Marine Corps, Army Night Vision Lab, Defense Acquisition University, Ford Motor Company, Epsilon Systems and the New York City police.
