Download A Methodology for Determining Air Force Deployment by Don Snyder PDF

By Don Snyder

The Air Force's transition from a threat-based to a capabilities-based making plans posture indicates the necessity to calculate speedily the manpower and gear required to generate these functions. This booklet outlines simply this sort of technique for choosing deployment standards. The technique employs a prototype examine tool--the Strategic device for the research of Required Transportation (START)--which generates lists of potential devices required to aid a user-specified operation. The appendix serves as a user's advisor to the beginning application

In these cases, we list the items individually as a “**Z99” UTC. , 2002. , food and fuel). 4 The UTC is a natural unit to quantify movement requirements because it forms the components of deployment TPFDDs. START combines the output list of UTCs with the Manpower and Equipment Force Packaging (MEFPAK)5 movement characteristics for each UTC. We have extended the movement characteristics listed in the MEFPAK to estimate the number of C-17 equivalents that would be needed to move the contents of these UTCs, while keeping in mind both maximum volume and weight constraints.

16 The rules for which and how many civil engineering UTCs to deploy have been well established in advance. These results should be fairly robust, especially for bare-base deployments. The results may somewhat overestimate civil engineering support at established bases if much of the requisite manpower and equipment is already in place. S. Central Command Air Forces (CENTAF) bare bases, whereas Harvest Eagle is designed primarily for deployment to United States Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) and United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE), but both sets can be used nearly anywhere.

The type and number of aircraft that are bedded down (or that use the base as an en-route location) as well as the mission and sortie rate of those aircraft • the level of threat to the base, both conventional and NBC. A option in START allows the user to specify whether the calculation is for IOC or full operating capability (FOC), which we use to mean IOC plus maintenance equipment for operations beyond 30 days, and munitions for operations up to seven days. 7 These planning factors give a range ____________ 6 Working Maximum on Ground is the number of aircraft that can be serviced on the ramp, whether refueling or loading or unloading cargo.
