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 rapidly the manpower and gear required to generate these services. This ebook outlines simply any such technique for opting for deployment necessities. The technique employs a prototype study tool--the Strategic software for the research of Required Transportation (START)--which generates lists of power devices required to aid a user-specified operation. The appendix serves as a user's consultant to the beginning software

Quantifying Deployment Requirements 7 only under special circumstances, or those that are comparatively light. 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.

5 Interviews at HQ ACC (Langley AFB) on January 27, 2002, and June 10, 2002, and at HQ AMC (Scott AFB) on January 8, 2002. 6 Although the C-17 was designed with many tactical capabilities, its deployment concept, like that of the C-5, was as a strategic lifter. UTCs are therefore designed to support working MOG in relatively small numbers, rather than bedding down in large numbers (like the KC-135). Functional Areas Treated and How They Deploy 19 Because they constitute a small fraction of the materiel, and are driven by factors beyond the scope of the inputs to START, we excluded four types of equipment that fall into the maintenance series of UTCs: battle damage repair (BDR), surveillance and reconnaissance equipment, war reserve materiel (WRM), and fuel tanks.

A TPFDD is a list of which units of capability need to be deployed in order to support the mission objectives, who will supply these capabilities, and details of the timing and routing of their transport. These units of capability are called Unit Type Codes (UTCs), and this list of UTCs is assembled by specialists in each career area, who are called functional area managers. For deliberate plans, this process can take on the order of a year. When a crisis occurs, assembling the TPFDD for a real deployment benefits from the experience of generating the deliberate plans (and planners sometimes use deliberate plans as a template), thus compressing the time-scale, but the process still takes weeks to months to complete.
