15 Aviation Campaign Plan (ACP) Remote Expeditionary Support Package (RESP)“…RESP has been added to the vernacular of aviation logisticians and is used to describe the initial logistics support package that is deployed. It remains critical to the deployability and effectiveness of Marine aviation that continued refinement of RESPSs in support of deliberate plans be conducted.
16 Remote Expeditionary Support Package (RESP) A RESP is a combination of a Fly-In Support Package (FISP) (O-level spare/repair parts), Airborne Weapons Support Equipment (AWSE), Aircraft Armament Equipment (AAE) – minus Class V(A), Aviation Support Equipment (SE), Mobile Facilities (MFs), and personnel that would detach from a supporting MALS to provide aviation peculiar logistics support to an Aviation Combat Element (ACE) for 30 days.A RESP is strategically airlifted to an Area of Responsibility and designed to provide aviation logistics support, to a specific number of a type aircraft, until the arrival of more robust, follow-on logistics support from Marine Aviation Logistics Support Program (MALSP) sources (PCSP, CCSP, FOSP), MPF assets, Host Nation Support, or other Joint/Combined logistics resources. When ACE missions, endurance, and bed down scenarios so dictate, the RESP may not be augmented by any additional, follow-on support and will serve as a stand-alone support package for the ACE."

20 MALSP Key Employment Factors Aviation Logistics Support Ship (T-AVB) ProgramMaritime Prepositioning Force (MPF) Program
21 T-AVB RequirementHistorically, the most difficult problem facing Marine aviation logistics planners was finding rapid, dedicated means of providing intermediate (I-level) maintenance capability to forward deployed aircraft.Without the T-AVB, it would require approximately 140 C-141lifts to deploy an equivalent Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS) to a crisis area.In the mid-1980s the Navy purchased 2 T-AVBs to solve the transportation problem (SS WRIGHT (T-AVB-3), SS CURTISS (T-AVB-4)).
22 T-AVB Mission PRIMARY SECONDARY To provide dedicated sea-lift for rapid movement of the aviation intermediate level support needed to sustain USMC fixed and rotary-wing aircraftSECONDARYTo provide for strategic-lift in a conventional container or Roll-On/Roll-Off (RO/RO) configuration
23 T-AVB Characteristics Commercial C5-s-78A SEABRIDGE class ships modified to support USMC aviation logistics operations.Combination Roll On/Roll Off (RO/RO) and Lift On/Lift Off (LO/LO).Maintained in five day Reduced Operating Status (ROS-5) by the Maritime Administration (MARAD), a component of the Maritime Sealift Command (MSC) .Commercial U.S. Merchant retention crew is stationed aboard each ship to monitor and maintain vessel equipment.

30 T-AVB Modes of Operation OPERATIONAL MODE (primary mode of operation)-Mobile facilities (MFs) and personnel of the MALS are configured aboard the T-AVB to provide selected, sea-based, expeditionary aviation logistics support to a MAGTF ACE.In this mode, 300 containers (MFs, reefers, flatracks, etc.) and 42 access modules can be loaded aboard the T-AVB (186 of which may be fully powered and operational MFs).
31 T-AVB Modes of Operation TRANSPORT MODE - MFs and personnel of the MALS are embarked aboard the T-AVB to provide maximum, land-based expeditionary aviation logistics support to the MAGTF ACE.In this mode, approximately 684 MFs can be loaded aboard the T-AVB, none of which may be powered or operational until configured ashore.
32 T-AVB Modes of Operation COMBINATION MODE - MFs and personnel of the MALS are embarked aboard the T-AVB to provide selected sea-based and maximum land-based expeditionary aviation logistic support to the MAGTF ACE.In this mode, the number of MFs that can be loaded aboard the T-AVB and the number that can be powered and operational will depend on the desired support concept required by the MAGTF ACE commander.
