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 kit required to generate these services. This e-book outlines simply this sort of method for selecting deployment standards. The method employs a prototype learn tool--the Strategic software for the research of Required Transportation (START)--which generates lists of potential devices required to aid a user-specified operation. The appendix serves as a user's advisor to the beginning application

Prior to now 25 years, the sphere of area and movement conception has speedily complicated. as soon as regarded as special perceptual modes, area and movement at the moment are regarded as heavily associated. conception of area andMotion offers a finished evaluate of belief and imaginative and prescient study literature, together with new advancements within the use of sound and contact in perceiving area and movement.

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.

The FMSE calculator is in broad use by the MAJCOMs for detailed FMSE deployment planning. 26 The exceptions to this rule are JFXX1 and JFXX2, two composite FMSE UTCs proposed by the creators of the FMSE Calculator but not yet in any MEFPAK. To closely match the movement characteristics of these two UTCs, we applied the requirements to their component UTCs, which were in the MEFPAK. Details on these components can be found in the FMSE Calculator. 27 Current fuels planning factors do not extend beyond 24-PAA fighters.

Further, if facilities such as antennae must be erected outside the base perimeter, additional force protection will be required to secure those assets. Topography can impede line-of-sight communications, necessitating additional communications equipment. On the other hand, topography can make the base easier to defend, thereby reducing the force protection requirements. Base layout and topography substantially affect requirements for only a few of the functional areas. For this reason, and to keep the tool as flexible as possible and to obviate the need for a detailed base survey, we have estimated the requirements for a given operational capability with a “typical” deployed base layout and topography.
