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 speedily the manpower and gear required to generate these functions. This e-book outlines simply any such technique for selecting deployment necessities. The technique employs a prototype examine 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

The model should also be fairly accurate in calculating the materiel needed to supply supplemental billeting when deploying to an established base. Its only weakness will be in estimating industrial op____________ 23 AFPAM 10-219, 1996, Vol. 5, p. 169. Functional Areas Treated and How They Deploy 29 erations and flightline support to an established base. Whether or not a deployed site requires industrial operations or flightline support will depend on the particular circumstances of that base. We have estimated that, on average, industrial operations support will not be needed at an established base, and flightline support will be needed only if a new airframe is deployed, and these needs will be fulfilled by roughly the materiel in a Harvest Falcon follow-on flightline set.

All fire protection UTCs start with the prefix 4F9F* and include crash and rescue trucks, water carriers, and the manpower and supporting equipment to fight fires and rescue people. 13 Pumpers are deployed as a “**Z99” UTC when needed. Manpower and equipment needs are driven by the number of crash and rescue trucks needed, which is driven by the size of the largest airframe bedded down at the base. Five National Fire Protection Association airport categories (called Categories 4, 7, 8, 9, and 10) determine the minimum water flow rate required (measured in gallons per minute), which is fulfilled by five Air Force vehicle sets (numbered 1 through 5).

In the previous threat-based mode of planning, the logistical component revolved around generating a limited number of time-phased force deployment data (TPFDD) to support a limited number of specific operations in particular geographic locations.
