(Disaster Assistance Logistics Information System)
BACKGROUND: During the April 1991 Kurdish Relief effort, no comprehensive procedures for humanitarian support requirements were in existence. As a result, the U.S. Army's 353d Civil Affairs Command and the 354th Civil Affairs Brigade, in cooperation with other national and international agencies, developed a software program to track such humanitarian support. A DOS-based logistics inventory system (DALIS) is the result of those efforts.
In February 1992, following the establishment of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the need for competent coordination of a massive world-wide humanitarian relief effort was European Command (USEUCOM), now provides in-depth tracking of relief supplies that are required and provided by humanitarian assistance organizations and agencies. DALIS version 2.0 has beenupgraded to enhance the operations of one or more Logistics Coordination Centers (LCCs) supporting multiple world-wide humanitarian relief operations.
