5 Meeting the Challenge Marine Aviation Logistics Support Program (MALSP) is an umbrella program that encompasses a number of different programs –The Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS) program –The Contingency Support Package (CSP) program –The Aviation Logistics Support Ship (T-AVB) program –The Maritime Pre-positioning Force (MPF) Ships program Enables Aviation Logistics to rapidly task- organize, deploy, and sustain a deployed MAGTF ACE Supports day-to-day operations

6 Another part of the Challenge: Compositing MAGTF ACE Logistics Skilled Personnel FacilitiesSparesEquipment Intermediate Level Logistics Depot Level Logistics Organization Level Logistics

7 Contingency Support Packages (CSP) COMPONENTS = MALSP PILLARS Support equipment –Tailored I-level capability –Common & Peculiar systems –Based on employment concept Mobile facilities –House test benches –Store supply assets –Provide work and administrative space

8 Contingency Support Packages (CSP) COMPONENTS = MALSP PILLARS Spare/repair parts –AVCAL and COSAL allowances –Tailored to CSP maintenance capability –Combat flight hours for 90 Day endurance period Personnel –MALS Core provides common & supervisory skills –Squadron augments provide peculiar T/M/S support

9 Contingency Support Package Capabilities Identifies aviation logistics support for Marine contingency requirements Provides the necessary people, support equipment, mobile facilities and spare/repair parts for each MAG/MALS Ensures that adequate peculiar support is available for separate/sustained operational commitments when attached to a host MALS

13 Marine Aviation Logistics Support Program (MALSP) Employment Remove-and-replace spare parts Airlifted into AOR as part of Fly-In Echelon Married with O- level SE aboard MPF ships Provides 30 days of combat flying Allows Marine aircraft to commence operations while I level support is moved into theatre T/M/S Specific FISPs Aircraft Squadrons The Old MALSP MANTRA

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."

18 MALSP Employment of RESP A RESP includes the FISP RESPs deploy with Assault Echelon (AE) to support FIE until arrival of MPF/T-AVB in AOR Airlifted into AOR as part of FIE Allows Marine aircraft to commence operations during FDOs while I level support is moved into AOR RESPs are consumed by CCSP/PCSP as they are moved into AOR T/M/S Specific RESPs Aircraft Squadrons The NEW MALSP MANTRA

19 MALSP Employment/Build-up in AOR RESPs FLY IN WITH ASSAULT ECHELON ACFT (O LEVEL REMOVE-AND-REPLACE) - 30 DAYS OF SUPPORT 1 CCSPs AND PCSPs FOLLOW RESPS BY TAVB/AIRLIFT IN THE ASSAULT FOLLOW-ON ECHELON (TAILORED I LEVEL CAPABILITY) – 90 DAYS OF SUPPORT.

21 T-AVB Requirement Historically, 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.Historically, 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.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)).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)).
