CHOBUGROUP LLC was formed in 2019 with the objective of combining extensive business process experience in engineering design and supply chain information management with academic research into intelligent software solutions.

CHOBUGROUP's principals come from leadership positions in industry (founded CDM Technologies Inc. that was acquired by Boeing in 2010) and academia (founded the Collaborative Agent Design Research Centre at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, who's military development system, ICODES was identified in the 2012 Congressional Report on Defense Business Operations as a software solution of excellence).

Boeing News Release
(Tuesday, 16th November, 2010)

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 16, 2010/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boeing today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire CDM Technologies, a software engineering company that specializes in real-time transportation and logistics planning systems for the U.S. military.

"CDM Technologies' intelligent decision-assistance tools will increase the adaptability of logistics planning for Boeing customers," said Galen Aswegan, president of Tapestry Solutions and director of Boeing Logistics Command & Control. "Whether by air, sea, rail or road, their routing and load-planning optimization software provides customers with in-transit visibility and rapid re-planning capabilities." ...

ICODES Strategic Deployment System

The Integrated Computerized Deployment System (ICODES) is the U.S. Department of Defense joint system of record for strategic military deployment with a user-base of over 30,000 military users. The initial system was designed and developed by the CADRC center at Cal Poly for release in 2001, as a multi-modal (i.e., air, ship, and rail) load-planning system with an internal information model and software agents capable of automated reasoning. It was progressively extended by CDM Technologies Inc and most recently by Boeing after CDM was acquired by Boeing in 2010. ...


The Single Load-planning Capability (SLPC) vision allows all services to plan, coordinate, and communicate load planning for multiple transportation modes across the Joint Deployment Distribution Enterprise (JDDE). The United States Joint Forces Command introduced the SLPC to the Distribution Steering Group in March 2007. A Capabilities Based Analysis Team (CBAT) was formed to include partner members from USTRANSCOM, U.S Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM), U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and other organizations. ICODES was selected as the SLPC platform. The CBAT specified objectives including web-based accessibility and the ability to load multiple conveyances simultaneously. Fielding began in June 2011; SLPC is no longer a vision, it is a reality.
