Army’s Mobile Connect App, which has undergone extensive testing and review, is revolutionizing the way Soldiers gain access to secure, official Army websites. The app’s two-factor authentication is both quick and secure, making it ideal for accessing EAMS-A from your own mobile device.
The app was developed by the Mobile Division of The Army Distributed Learning Program (TADLP), tested by the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information System, and released in January 2021 for Android and Apple smartphones on a variety of public platforms by the Training and Doctrine Command’s Army Career Tracker (ACT) Program Management Division.
Prior to release, the app was refined and tested extensively to ensure that it provided users with a simple, yet powerful, experience.
The Army’s PEO EIS, which was crucial to the development of the app, is responsible for a wide range of IT services, including the maintenance of networks and the management of business operations.
In addition to its namesake duty of aiding Soldiers in keeping tabs on their Army careers and studies, the ACT system is also the Program Management Division’s automated enterprise solution for the Total Army Sponsorship Program (TASP). With the use of the Army Mobile Connect App, Soldiers and Sponsors will be able to access ACT and securely complete Army Sponsorship on a mobile device without the need for a CAC Card.
At the start of 2021, we became actively involved in the Mobile Connect trial program. Tyrone Johnson, Chief, of the Army Career Tracker (ACT) Program Management Division, explained over the phone six months after the app’s release that one of their primary responsibilities in the app’s design was to represent the end-user and provide as much feedback as possible to the developers.
In the roughly six months since its introduction, Soldier reviews have almost always given the app a positive rating.
Smartphone access to Army installations is critical to giving that mobility and flexibility, and it is becoming more and more crucial to Soldiers. The app is useful for personnel who do not have access to a CAC-enabled device because users do not need to be on the NIPR to utilize it. Johnson elaborated.
Chief of TRADOC’s Mobile Division, Matt MacLaughlin, initially released the app and has since released an update with new capabilities. “We are continually vetting the software to make it valuable to the user,” MacLaughlin stated. “Once installed, this software can be used even when your device isn’t connected to the internet. Just as significant, Mobile Connect strengthens the integrity of traditional login credentials by requiring a one-time verification via a unique code sent to the user’s mobile device.
The Army Mobile Connect App is highly regarded, with a 4.8 on Google Apps. Positive feedback was abundant across all platforms, with users praising the app’s “Resourceful” design and lauding its “flawless” functionality.
Army’s Mobile Connect App Is Designed With Simplicity In Mind
The app can only be used after signing up for the Mobile Connect service and creating an EAMS-A account with the US Army. The software includes easy-to-follow instructions.
When a user logs in to EAMS-A, as they typically would, a prompt from Mobile Connect appears on their smartphone shortly after, requesting authentication. In addition, the user has the option of using a randomly generated one-time passcode.
Soon, users will be able to access resources that were previously inaccessible without the use of a username and password thanks to Army Mobile Connect.
Concerning The Deployed Education Program In The Army (TADLP)
The Army’s Chief of Staff established the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) and designated its commanding general as the program’s Executive Agent in 1996. This position grants the TRADOC chief entire responsibility for the program’s centralized management and integration. TADLP Director Michael Holt is based out of Virginia’s Fort Eustis. The mission of the Army Distributed Learning Program (TADLP) is to increase the readiness of the Army by providing Soldiers, leaders, and Army civilians with high-quality, relevant, and individualized distributed training and education through a flexible and easily accessible (and often mobile) delivery mechanism. The Army utilizes the cutting-edge, time-tested methodology of Distributed Learning (DL) to provide on-demand, anywhere, anytime training and education for individuals, groups, and the whole force. TADLP is at the forefront of developing flexible, user-friendly models for distributed and distance learning that take advantage of new technology to make education accessible from anywhere and in any format a student may like.
Traduction To The U.S. Army’s Center For Training And Documentation (TRADOC)
As of July 1, 1973, the United States Army established the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). Since its inception nearly fifty years ago, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) has completely revamped the United States Army, making it the most highly trained, most technologically advanced, most expertly led, and most efficiently structured contemporary land power in the world. When it comes to molding active-duty personnel, TRADOC focuses on four key areas: recruitment and training, leadership development, doctrine, and integrating capabilities. TRADOC’s mission is carried out through five subordinate commands and centers, including the U.S. Army Center of Military History in Virginia, the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center in Kansas, the U.S. Army Center for Initial Military Training in Georgia, and the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in Texas (located at Fort Knox, Kentucky). The command is world-focused and has jurisdiction over 32 Army schools clustered into 8 Centers of Excellence, each of which specializes in a particular aspect of the Army’s mission (i.e. Maneuver and Signal). More than half a million Soldiers and other service members receive training each year from TRADOC.
