5 Joint Operational Pay-offs FUTURE LIFTJoint Operational Pay-offsMore rapid introduction of forcesIncreased capability to achieve assured accessReduced vulnerability to enemy countersIncreased possibility of achieving operational surpriseImmediate employment of deployed forcesMore rapid seizure of the initiative with preclusive effectsSignificantly higher versatility and adaptabilityMore rapid transition to decisive operationsExpanded capability to maintain overwhelming tempoMore rapid achievement of conflict termination and/or transition to another JOAMust possess these vital qualities:Bypass predictable and traditional choke pointsDeliver intact combat power at multiple entry pointsSupport uninterrupted deployment momentumProvide for assured access, and decrease predictability and dwell timeArmy Leadfor Intratheater LiftShallow Draft High Speed ShipTheater Support VesselHLVTOLSSTOL

7 SUMMARY OF CHANGE TODAY TOMORROW Incremental build of combat power. Four interrelated segmentsOperational maneuver from strategic distances. Deploy = EmployAlert/Train/DeployTrain/Alert/DeployLengthy TPFDD processImmediate data entry into DTSLengthy task organization process with below the line forcesPrompt “as is” deploying modules with basic loadPOD dependent/susceptible to anti-accessMultiple entry points/bypass choke pointsJoint deconflictionJoint interdependenceLarge, layered organizations for deployment and distribution gap between early entry and follow-on forcesAgile teams with space-based persistent comms for both deployment and distributionUninterrupted deployment momentumAmmunition in theaterDeploy with ammunitionIron mountainDistribution-based; intermodal (configured loads for prompt force)Developed theatersAll theatersLimited to surface movement in theaterOperational maneuver by air of one division
9 THEATER LIFT Theater Support Vessel Rapidly self-deploy to the JOA (soldiers, equipment, and sustainment together)Increase accessConduct rapid shore to shore intra-theater sea lift of combat ready unit sets to support operational maneuverGain access through multiple points of entry through small, minor or degraded portsConduct enroute mission planning and rehearsalConduct follow-on sustainment and/or repositioning of units in forward areasLength Overall ft, beam ftCargo Capacity: Up to 820 STs & 14,300 SqFtPax Capacity: 292Max draft – ft.Loaded Speed - 32 knots - light ship Speed - 40 knotsMaxRequired Range - 2,400 nautical miles - load dependentTSV is the only Army unique intra-theater lift platform that meetsArmy Transformation Vision Goals
10 OEF/OIF OBSERVATIONS ITV and electronic tracking Lack integrating policyNeed DOTMLPF battlefield construct for manned and remote systemsRedesign movement control (structure and doctrine)Modernize transportation C2 tools (TC AIMS II, MTS)Logistics and contractingHost Nation Support and LOGCAPFailed to meet expectations and requirementsWeapon system fieldingMovement Tracking SystemTCAIMS / IRRIS / RFIDKALMAR RTCHTSV Acquisition
11 OIF/OEF OBSERVATIONS Theater distribution Established strategic linkage and operational Command and ControlCommodity distributionLacked In-transit Visibility and materiel / transportation integrationArmy prepositioned stocksLargest draw in historyFighting systems were in excellent shapeComplex property transferArmy watercraft and Joint Logistics Over the ShoreLargest since Vietnam (>5,000 containers)Theater Support Vessel operational significanceArmy support to 26 Marine Expeditionary Unit landingNavy Special Operation Forces direct action and Umm Qasr opening
12 DEPLOYMENT OBSERVATIONS Post ODS Army Strategic Mobility Program (ASMP)CONUS Force ProjectionRail capacity tripled at Hood, quadrupled at CampbellShipped over 380,000 tons in third less time than first Gulf WarUse of Large Medium Speed Roll-On/Roll-Off (LMSR) and C-17 eliminated weeks in transit timeArmy Deployment Command and ControlImproved deployment process – TC-AIMS II/JFRG II in USAREURHQ MTMC Operations center – good start!Deployment seams remain in process / command relationshipsContinue Mobility Warrant Officer programContinue Joint Deployment Employment Sustainment process improvement initiativesReengineered Army and Joint distribution processes
