, and the transportation capacity assets within the CSSE dedicated to moving supplies are all significant contributing factors in sustaining the movement of the GCE. This thesis defines a logistics process and develops a simulation where the GCE consumes logistical resources necessary to sustain its movement toward assigned objectives while being supported by a CSSE in an expanding maneuver warfare environment. We define a successful sustainment of the GCE and using logistic regression, confirm the above three factors contribute significantly to the success rate of sustainment in the simulation. Through regression and leverage plots we determine which of the three factors contribute significantly more to the responses of success and time. We also conclude through a sample means comparison the combination of factor values that achieve a minimal delay in sustainment for the GCE in the simulation.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The U.S. Marine Corps concept for the projection of naval power ashore is Operational Maneuver From the Sea (OMFTS). OMFTS calls for movement of Marines from ships at sea directly to objectives deep inland without requiring a pause to build up combat power on the beach. Support for ground forces is expected to come from the sea, and be delivered primarily by air. This demands that sea based logistics assets remain sufficiently close to shore to allow air assets to conduct resupply operations directly to the battlefield. The implication of this is that Navy ships may sacrifice operational and perhaps tactical mobility while sustaining the Marine operation. This thesis determines the distance from the coastline sea based Combat Service Support (CSS) assets will be able to maintain and still support operations of a given magnitude, and how tactically constrained Navy ships will be in order to support this concept of expeditionary warfare. It focuses on the time distance weight/volume relationships involved, and takes into account characteristics of the resupply assets, such as aircraft availability, capacity, method of employment, and the effects of combat attrition. Three methods of employing a Marine Expeditionary Unit are studied...

The Marine Corps has embraced the concepts of Operational Maneuver From The Sea (OMFTS) and Ship-to-Objective Maneuver (STOM) as the next progression in the evolution of amphibious warfare. These related concepts envision harnessing emerging technologies to allow the projection of naval power ashore faster and from greater distances than in the past. Additionally, both concepts identify the ability to conduct sea-based logistics (SBL) as a key requirement for successful implementation. Sea-based logistics involves executing a wide range of logistical functions from a sea-base rather than from sites traditionally established ashore. Acknowledged enhancements are required to realize a complete SBL capability; however, the ability to provide some measure of sea-based sustainment exists today. This thesis models the sea-based sustainment of Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable) (MEU(SOC)) forces deployed from Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) ships. Missions are developed for analysis; each is coupled with an appropriate force package of personnel and equipment density. Sustainment requirements and available transportation capacities are then determined and compared for each mission. This comparison along with several excursions provides insight into the nature of sea-based sustainment feasibility. It also gauges potential limitations for sea-based sustainment.

The Marine Corps has formed a vision of how to conduct future amphibious warfare through its development of Operational Maneuver From the Sea (OMFTS), Ship-to-Objective Maneuver (STOM), and Sea-based Logistics (SBL) concepts. These concepts have forces deploying directly from ship to objectives ashore with a reduction or elimination of logistics infrastructure ashore. Combat forces operating ashore will be sustained directly from a sea-base with support from ship-to-shore transporters. By sea basing logistics functions, there will be a much greater demand upon these transporters. This thesis models the sea-based sustainment of Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) forces deployed from amphibious warfare ships. A scenario for analysis is developed with force packages of personnel and equipment located at certain locations ashore during different days of an operation. Sustainment requirements and available transporter capacity are then determined and compared for twenty-seven cases comprising different ship-to-shore distances, different levels of aircraft attrition due to enemy interdiction, and different footprints of mobile logistics forces deployed ashore. This comparison provides insight into the ability of SBL to sustain forces ashore conducting rations in accordance with OMFTS and STOM concepts.

from Scythe : Proceedings and Bulletin of the International Data Farming Community, Issue 2 Workshop 14; Problem Statement: The team objective was to compare the ground-based fire support capabilities of the Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) in order to gain insights that are relevant to organizing the MEU for operations. Specifically, two systems, the Expeditionary Fire Support System (EFSS) and the 155mm lightweight howitzer (M777), were the focus of the analytic effort. The scenario for the comparison employed Ship-To-Objective Maneuver (STOM) tactics and USMC Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare doctrine.

For George Solhan, Deputy Chief of Naval Research for Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism Science and Technology (S&T), and Director of Marine Corps Science and Technology, the will is the way. Thirty years after twice applying to the Naval Postgraduate School as a young Marine Corps major, and being turned down twice, he was finally "admitted" to deliver the Secretary of the Navy guest lecture and to recruit a new generation of young officers for the leading edge S&T enterprise of the Office of Naval Research.

The article of record as published may be found at http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/sys.20012; This paper presents a method for performing architectural analyses of complex systems-ofsystems using process modeling. A process is a series of actions undertaken by a system-ofsystems to produce one or more end results, typically products and services. The method applies to systems-of systems whose effectiveness and performance depend strongly on process timelines, such as distributed information systems, logistics systems, and manufacturing and distribution systems. A fundamental tool in this method is the development of a unified modeling language (UML) related view of the system-of-system processes of interest and the subsequent conversion of the UML related view into an end-to-end system-of-systems executable object-oriented simulation model. This method is illustrated by applying process modeling and simulation to analysis of a military systems-of-systems, an expeditionary warfare system envisioned for the 2015à ¢ 2020 time frame. Expeditionary warfare is the operation of an armed force in an area far from a supportable home base and supported by temporarily established means. The U.S. military has conducted expeditionary warfare in the past by building up forces...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The United States Marine Corps will bring toughness, vision, and refined tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) from a 13-year desert fight into the next major combat operation or small contingency. This Marine Corps proclivity for action is reflected in driven Marines, doctrine and the personnel carriers or vehicles used by Marines to execute maneuver warfare from the sea. The first responder for the next contingency will likely be the Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), which is the smallest seabased configuration of a Marine Air Ground Task Force. The MEU provides rapid crisis response from U.S. Navy ships and is likely to be the principal component of the future force at sea. This research informs the top procurement priorities for the United States Navy by evaluating the MEU’s expeditionary amphibious assault capability and the use of ship-to-shore connectors. In hundreds of thousands of simulated assaults, it identifies TTPs and mission profiles that achieve increased operational effectiveness, while employing less operational energy. The major results quantify the benefits of debarking amphibious forces at closer distances...

As part of the ongoing Revolution in Military Affairs, the Navy and Marine Corps are engaged in an ambitious effort to integrate emerging technologies into new operational concepts. The vision of future conflict places heavy emphasis on highly mobile forces that will require unprecedented cooperation between forces afloat and ashore. These new operational concepts, such as Operational Maneuver From the Sea (OMFTS), require new technologies to give small combat units unmatched situational awareness ultimately leading to greater combat power. The Extending the Littoral Battlespace (ELB) Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration has sought to demonstrate new advances in joint expeditionary warfare significantly aided by a commercial-off-the-shelf wireless communications system. This thesis examines potential vulnerabilities of the ELB wireless local area network. Specifically, it explores the impact such vulnerabilities may have on the eventual ability of supported units to accomplish their mission in an OMFTS-type scenario. The vulnerabilities are divided between the two network layers defined by the commercial standard, the physical and MAC layers. This study concludes that there are considerable vulnerabilities at both network layers...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; As the United States enters a new millennium, the armed forces, and in particular the Marine Corps, face new challenges in the manner that they deploy and operate. Reductions in both personnel and naval shipping, coupled with an ever-changing world political environment, have led to a dramatic shift in the way that the United States must project its power. As recent combat operations in Afghanistan have demonstrated, there is a valid requirement for forces to possess the ability to operate from the sea directly to an objective area with minimal or no amphibious landing support. This thesis provides an analysis of the most advantageous assault support aircraft allocation aboard a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) in operations such as this. With the MEU tasked as one of the prominent fixtures in the timely projection of power ashore for the United States, the capabilities (or lack thereof) of assault support aircraft become increasingly important as ship-to-objective distances increase. Our method of finding an optimal composition of aircraft consists of constructing an Assault Support Optimization Model (ASOM). ASOM is assists us in prescribing an ideal configuration of assault support aircraft while emulating the dynamic amphibious environment. ASOM analyzes the assignment of several aircraft combinations (4 CH-53E/12 MV-22...
