Field Expedient Applications (FEA) is an application suite that enables military and similar users to log and keep track of their day to day work and report, as well as a helper to perform calculations to support operations and submit requests. Designed for Marine Corps, Army, and other military and commercial logistics and maintenance users.
The calculators are simple in nature with a GUI designed for smartphones and tablets that users in the field operate to quickly address and manipulate complex sets of numbers and capture local activities. Apps do not have automatic network access but will share data with native phone apps that BYOD users can use when authorized to connect or via other approved devices. FEA uses only the camera and local file system. The three core applications are:
Water/Rations Calculator: An application that calculates water and rations (food) needs for a group over a number of days. Advanced version accounts for temperature and non-potable water requirements.
Logistics Support Request: A tool that creates a formatted message used to convey logistics requirements for a unit.
Worklog: An application that enables the user to capture, store, and distribute data of Maintenance and Inspections actions.
