The Army Sustainment Command’s (ASC) Materiel Readiness Training Division (MRTD) offers valuable automated logistics sustainment training on logistics tools, applications and programs in support of Army operations.

Previously, the primary tools MRTD taught were Logistics Data Analysis Center (LDAC)-centric. Since transitioning to ASC, MRTD has expanded the courses they provide to include any logistics readiness-enabling tool or application. 

MRTD’s mission is to bridge the gap between professional military education and unit-provided training. MRTD Provides tactical, operational, strategic, and functional knowledge through the development of training material and the execution of Automated Logistics Training to enable the Army’s Materiel Readiness; equipping logisticians with Distributed Learning Materials necessary to enhance knowledge and skills required for maintaining unit readiness.

MRTD provides customer tailored, instructor led, hands-on, over-the-shoulder training session; utilizing TEAMS, Blackboard and the AESIP DST-Train Site (which replicates the actual DST Tool).

MRTD develops new courses/programs as needed. Current courses include: 
  • Decision Support Tool - Sourcing Module (DST-SM)
  • Strategic Support Area Business Reporting Environment tool (SABRE) Supply Management Army (SMA)
  • Strategic Support Area Business Reporting Environment tool (SABRE) Organic Industrial Base (OIB)
  • Decision Support Tool Unit Reset Planner (URP)
  • Theater Provided Equipment (TPE)
  • Army Readiness Common Operating Picture (AR-COP)
  • Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE)
