Colorado AF Reservists support new military cargo tracking system

Master Sgt. Tom Freeman, a 731st Airlift Squadron loadmaster, provides a recorded interview with U.S. Air Force Academy personnel Sept. 24 before a simulated container delivery system drop at Fort Carson, Colo. The CDS drop, supported by a C-130 Hercules crew from the Air Force Reserve's 302nd Airlift Wing, supported the USAFA's Airdrop Enhanced Logistics Visibility System prototype system that demonstrated the ability of commanders in the field and at the headquarters level to simultaneously identify the location and contents of a CDS within minutes of the cargo leaving the aircraft. The AELVIS program aims to provide war fighters in locations like Iraq and Afghanistan with exact details on crucial cargo drops for resupply. (U.S. Air Force photo/Capt. Jody L. Ritchie)
