Estimating Air Force Deployment Requirements for Lean Force Packages

A Methodology and Decision Support Tool Prototype

Book Description

The Air Force lacks a comprehensive tool or methodology for integrated deployment planning that can rapidly explore trade-offs among capability (or risk), speed, and cost to achieve lean force packages for use in contested, degraded, and operationally limited environments. This report describes a methodology and prototype tool—called the Lean Strategic Tool for the Analysis of Required Transportation (Lean-START)—that fills the void.
