Boeing Gets Sustainment Contract for Military Load Planning, Cargo Tracking System

Jeff Brody

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a contract from U.S. Transportation Command to improve and sustain a logistics software application designed to automate military load planning and monitor cargo across ground, aerial and maritime domains for the Department of Defense.

The company said Thursday the Integrated Computerized Deployment System works with transportation and defense information platforms to help users share data across the defense transportation network.

Tapestry Solutions, a part of Boeing’s global services business, will work with UNCOMN and Jasper Solutions on the recompete contract.

Debbie Churchill, vice president of mission products and services at Tapestry Solutions, said ICODES provides clients a common operating picture to help oversee the movement of cargo and passengers while reducing operational costs and load planning time.

Researchers at a California Polytechnic State University research laboratory developed ICODES in 1993, which led to the formation of a small business. Boeing gained access to ICODES through the business and transitioned the technology to Tapestry through a contract novation agreement.
