Make sure your deployment shipments get to you!

So you're preparing vehicles and shipping containers for your deployment to the sand box. Did you know there's a system for tracking those items and increasing the probability you'll actually get them?

The Intransit Visibility (ITV) server uses radio frequency identification tags to report the last known status and location of your shipment.

U.S. ARMY PERSONNEL CAN USE THEIR AKO LOGON AND PASSWORD TO ACCESS ITV DATA.

Pocket Guides

The project manager for Joint Automatic Identification Technology has prepared two small handbooks to help units using the ITV server and software. The ITV Server Guide and the REID Operations Guide can be viewed and downloaded from either of these websites:
