Abstract : A ground medical expeditionary support response is needed in an A2/AD environment. Depending on the threat, the U.S. military will operate in new and austere locations. In this paper, we examine HIT and how it acts as a force enabler and mitigates the adversary's A2/AD approach to limit the United States (US) military's power projection. As the Department of Defense (DoD) rebalances the force with more focus on the Asia-Pacific region, this paper identifies the Air-Sea Battle (ASB) concept, US military's primary strategy to A2/AD, and how HIT alleviates challenges associated within an A2/AD setting.
