On August 25, Gen. Darren W. McDew, commander, U.S. Transportation Command, presented the Commander’s Innovation Showcase Award for the second quarter 2017 to the Deployment and Distribution Crosswalk team from TCJ5/4 for establishing a new process to support integration of global distribution operations planning.


To earn the distinguished honor, the D2 Crosswalk team developed a process that provides command leadership with a holistic view of capabilities and global distribution requirements in order to make more informed resource-allocation decisions across multiple areas of responsibility.


McDew remarked the D2 Crosswalk team examined 9,000 pages of U.S. Pacific Command’s OPLANS and Logistics Supportability Analyses to provide recommendations to mitigate and improve distribution across USPACOM’s Area of Responsibility.


“We couldn’t do it without the rest of TRANSCOM,” said D2 Crosswalk Team Lead Lt. Cmdr. Chris Kading. “We came up with the idea, but it took the support of TRANSCOM to make it happen.”


McDew also presented two Honorable Mention certificates. The first was awarded to the Mission Assurance Cyber Strategy team consisting of individuals from Air Mobility Command, Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, Military Sealift Command, Naval Station Norfolk, Va., 18th Air Force, TCAC, TCJ2, TCJ3 and TCJ5/4 for developing a strategy to ensure the command understands when and where to spend its next cyberspace dollar.


The second went to the 62d Aerial Port Squadron’s Prime Nuclear Airlift Force Team, which joined the ceremony via video teleconference from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., for designing and building specialized storage racks and transport containers to reduce wear-and-tear on assets from Prime Nuclear Airlift Force shoring kits.


“Sometimes we need people to be creative to get around barriers,” McDew said.


The Innovation Showcase award recognizes USTRANSCOM teams for demonstrating collaboration and creative thinking to solve problems on behalf of the warfighter. “It’s a program designed to let the command know about the great innovation taking place across the enterprise,” McDew said.


The command is currently accepting nominations for the third quarter 2017. To submit a nomination, visit the TRANSCOM Innovation Program site on IntelShare by September 29.
