A Methodology for Determining Air Force Deployment by Don Snyder

By Don Snyder

The Air Force's transition from a threat-based to a capabilities-based making plans posture indicates the necessity to calculate quickly the manpower and gear required to generate these functions. This ebook outlines simply this kind of method for deciding upon deployment specifications. The method employs a prototype examine tool--the Strategic instrument for the research of Required Transportation (START)--which generates lists of potential devices required to help a user-specified operation. The appendix serves as a user's advisor to the beginning application

This capability would provide a ready means to evaluate manpower and equipment authorizations and to provide a framework for posturing UTCs. Second, an analytical tool to assist in TPFDD building would expedite crisis action planning, reducing the time required to generate the TPFDD, and thus reducing the response time to exigencies. ____________ 4 Davis, 2002. 5 Force Modules are fixed lists of UTCs assembled to perform common Air Force operations. Five Force Modules are being developed: open the airbase, provide command and control capabilities, establish the airbase, generate the mission, and operate the airbase.

The level of description in that chapter provides the user with enough information to evaluate the fidelity of the results for any application of interest. Chapter Four presents some illustrative applications using the analysis ____________ 5 Elliott, 2003. 1 tool. Chapter Five presents our conclusions and recommendations. Finally, the Appendix serves as a detailed user’s guide, providing stepby-step instructions on how to input data and how to read the results of the calculations. 1 The base-level requirements thus form the building blocks for determining the theater-level requirements,2 and, hence, the prototype analysis tool described in this report operates at the base level.

The Inputs for the START Model The aspects of an operational capability that principally drive the materiel and manpower needs are the aircraft, the total base population, and the level of threat to which the base is exposed. For a non-bare base, any existing infrastructure at the base may also reduce the movement requirements. The type, number, mission, and sortie schedule of the aircraft drive materiel needs in areas such as aviation, maintenance, aerial port operations, munitions, and munitions handling.
