Major Solutions


MKGCS has developed a suite of integrated web-based applications.  Each application was engineered to solve a major information management challenge.  The success of these solutions in meeting the needs of our clients has been based on our success in applying our unique teaming principles to our production process.

MKGCS believes the best way to build an application that hits the target for the users and does so quickly is to see the problem through the eyes of the user.  That means we team our development staff with subject matter experts and build a solution focused on meeting the needs of the entire organization -- starting with the field users and going all the way up to the senior leaders.  The advantages of this model are: gains user support or "buy in" for the solution; focuses developers on the critical needs of each user group; and allows rapid prototyping with real-time feedback from end users.  This enables MKGCS to "get it right the first time" and to do so in weeks rather than months of development.


MKGCS solutions include:


The Department of the Army Mobilization Processing System is a system that automates the business processes of military forces mobilization. DAMPS is a web-based system that provides the workflow business process for the alert, notification and orders for Army reserve component units and individuals ordered to Active Duty. DAMPS produces and maintains unit mobilization orders. These orders provide instructions and authority for a mobilized unit to move from home station to the mob station based on the mobilization station assignments. Once the order is issued, Reserve Component commands can issue the individual mobilization orders for the members of the unit. DAMPS is the cornerstone of the concept to address a fundamental need for the Army to transform reserve mobilization into an agile, information based core business process.    As Army level orders are generated, information is passed from DAMPS through intermediate commands to Army personnel systems, enabling the lashing of requirements to individual orders and enabling systems to track soldiers through the entire mobilization cycle. Data reconciled through the integration of DAMPS and other Army systems provides the basis for the Army's enterprise approach to mobilization - the Mobilization Common Operating Picture - "MOBCOP".

The result - DAMPS provides significant gains in efficiency: enables surge, reduces man hour costs by decreasing labor needed to move requests through the validation process, and reduces processing times by more than half.

The Joint Service Training Oversight tool is a web-based tool that exists to assist in the coordination of non-Army capability training.  When requirements exceed the ability of an organization to source and provide a capability, it becomes necessary to utilize like capabilities from the other organizations.  The JSTO tool exists to capture, coordinate and train other organizations to work with the organization seeking additional or like capabilities.  JSTO provides a collaborative environment within these organizations to coordinate the preparation in advance of employment.  JSTO streamlines the workflows and automates business processes of the requirements and respective training timelines and organization capabilities.
The Mission Analysis Readiness Resource Synchronization tool is a cross-functional management tool which holistically synchronizes, leverages, and displays mission readiness and the production of readiness. This innovative data management approach provides the actionable information necessary to source and support validated mission and training requirements. MARRS presents readiness information from a strategic and operational perspective, with visual indicators of current capability based on available resources.

The Mobilization and Deployment Information System is an Army-wide system to identify and track the largest and most complex active and reserve forces deployments since World War II.   Integrating data feeds from Systems of Record into a force management tracking application, MDIS allows Army leaders at every echelon to monitor the assignment and rotation of units. By merging Combatant Command requirements for forces to internal Army mobilization decisions and finally to Major Army Command resourcing decisions,

The result - MDIS provides the Army with end-to-end asset visibility for Army units.


The Mobilization and Deployment Information System - ORDERS tool is a web-based tool used by the Chief of Staff of the Army (CSA), Forces Command (FORSCOM) and the United States Army Pacific (USARPAC) that automates the workflows needed to issue unit deployment orders. Missions are staffed with the respective Army HQs to obtain concurrence / acknowledgement of the subordinate commands of the tasked mission. Upon completion of staffing, unit deployment orders are issued by the respective Army HQ.

The result - MDIS ORDERS provides the Army with significant savings by consolidating multiple disparate orders generation systems and their affiliated workflows into one authoritative system of record. The DOD saved more money by doing this then that which was spent for the entire MOBCOP suite.


The Mobilization Common Operating Picture (MOBCOP) Messaging System is a web-based official message reader that catalogs inbound and outbound AUTODIN and DMS messages to and from HQDA for reuse as authoritative references of HQDA actions and directives including mobilizations, Execution Orders (EXORDS) and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) taskings. Messages are stored in an indexed, user friendly web-based database in formats that allow reuse and link by organizations and individuals that do not have access to official message traffic on their desktops.

The result- MMS has modernized legacy messaging systems into a Data Warehouse. This has allowed our system users to use messaging data in ways not possible before.

The Mobilization Common Operating Picture is a System of Record comprised of an integrated enterprise system of systems that provides a Common Operating Picture for functions related to mobilization of individuals and units. MOBCOP provides access through fully integrated interfaces to authoritative personnel and service data on Reserve Soldiers; tools to automate the Army’s sourcing, mobilization and tracking functions; and procedures that approve and generate orders for mobilizing and deploying Army units and Soldiers.

The Overseas Contingency Operations Individual Active Duty manages and automates the business process for the orders of those volunteering for contingency operations.  OCO-IND produces the individual active duty and mobilization orders for Reserve Component (RC) Soldiers who volunteer or are called to active duty as individuals rather than as members of RC units.  It also produces Active Duty travel orders for ROTC Cadets and Evacuation orders for those returning to Continental United States (CONUS) for medical reasons.


The Overseas Contingency Operations Temporary Change of Station manages and automates the business process for individual deployment orders.  OCO-TCS is an individual travel and mobilization order writing system.   Installation Management Command (IMCOM) installations, Army National Guard (ARNG) states and United States Army Reserve (USAR) commands produce individual Soldier Overseas Contingency Operation (OCO) Temporary Change of Station (TCS) orders, TDY orders and mobilization orders for Soldiers in units.  The system produces all Army TCS orders and most Soldier mobilization orders, as well as all operational TDY orders.  

Tour of Duty 


Tour of Duty (TOD) is an employment website for a Reserve Component (RC) Soldier to apply for a posted active duty (AD) job opportunity.  TOD is a system for advertising AD opportunities where RC Soldiers can look for available tours that match their skills and desire to serve.  Soldiers can volunteer for consideration for specific available tours and the hiring commands can screen and recommend interested candidates.  Selected Soldiers are issued individual active duty or mob orders (OCOIND) or unit specific mob orders (OCOTCS) and can view the issued orders in TOD or MDIS-Orders.
