The Navy's e-business operations office has selected four more projects for its fiscal 2004 e-business portfolio.

They include a Navy training project, a Navy visitor security process pilot and two Marine Corps projects focusing on solving bandwidth, secure wireless communications and network traffic challenges. Specifically, they cover:

* Human Systems Integration Metrics, commissioned by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (Spawar), meant to provide the ability to evaluate human performance factors with regard to training and report the effectiveness of training programs. It will identify human performance improvement opportunities related to manpower, personnel, safety and survivability.

* United States Marine Corps Enterprise Content Delivery Network, under the project management of the Marine Corps Network Operations/Security Command, designed to utilize new caching servers and associated software technology to maximize use of local bandwidth and minimize wide-area network saturation to improve network response times for Marines.

* Marine Corps Wireless Logistics Web, for testing the use of secure wireless communications in a deployed, multiuser tactical environment. Further, the Marine Corps headquarters pilot will provide the capability to deliver specific logistics options to the operational commander.

* Visitor Security Process, sponsored by the Naval Sea Systems Command, with the goal of identifying a single, standardized, automated visitor security process, integrated with the Common Access Card and public key infrastructure for deployment throughout the Navy. It will provide a Web-based process for requesting, executing, approving, tracking and archiving visitor authorization requests for all Navy Department facilities.

Navy officials announced its first round of projects in January, which will cover six programs with a total funding of $3.8 million. Officials did not say how much money is allotted for the four pilots announced today.
