Automated Movement and Identification Solutions (AMIS)
The Product Director Automated Movement and Identification Solutions (PD AMIS) has a diverse mission to support the U.S. Army, Department of Defense (DoD), federal agencies, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and several coalition partners. AMIS consists of DoD civil servants, Soldiers and contractors, providing functional, technical, engineering and management expertise. PD AMIS was established in September 2012 with the merging of two existing programs, Joint-Automatic Identification Technology (J-AIT) and Transportation Information Systems (TIS). AMIS stands ready to assist customers large and small to develop and automate their business processes.
In conjunction with the RF-ITV and TC-AIMS II systems, AMIS Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts provide Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Automatic Identification Technology (AIT)-enabling technologies, products and services that assist the DoD in improving Asset Visibility (AV) worldwide. In a February 2008 policy memorandum, the Army G-4 directed that “All U.S. Army organizations and activities will procure AIT products and services from AMIS. Direct procurement of AIT products and services from commercial sources is not authorized.”
AMIS provides a single point of contact for procurement, technical expertise, training and customer support for TC-AIMS II and RF-ITV products and services. In addition, AMIS supports the integration of automated movement and identification technologies into Army and Enterprise business processes.

With experience supporting DoD IUID implementation since 2003, AMIS offers IUID support services to Army customers, providing answers to IUID questions and cost-effective approaches to IUID planning and implementation.
