General Dynamics Information Technology celebrated placement of its 100,000th inventory mark in support of the U.S. Marine Corps’ Unique Item Identification program in yesterday’s ceremony at the Marine Corps Base Quantico.
The team commemorated the occasion by placing a special IUID tag on a Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement cargo vehicle.
With help from General Dynamics, the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command can more precisely track its logistical activity worldwide, said Kenneth Slaght, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics Information Technology’s Naval IT Solutions sector.
“With 100,000 items marked so far, the Marine Corps will have comprehensive information about a piece of equipment at their fingertips,” he said.
General Dynamics won a contract in April 2008 to provide the Marine Corps Systems Command with general and scientific support for IUID marking of legacy equipment, assemblies and subassemblies.
