capabilities: command and control and an

integrated in-transit visibility view of

personnel and cargo moving through the defense

transportation system. GTN provides a seamless,

near-real time capability to access and employ

transportation and deployment information for

customers located anywhere in the world. GTN is

also required to support USTRANSCOM and supported

CINC command and control requirements and

provide decision support capability for

contingency operations.
