Abstract : This two-volume report provides comprehensive generic information for the design and construction of future Prepositioned Materiel Configured to Unit Sets (POMCUS) installations, with specific attention to: (1) the particular facility requirements of POMCUS installation user/occupants in accomplishing the storage, maintenance, and issue functions; (2) The military threats and vulnerabilities; (3) The NATO construction finding justification provisions; and (4) The lessons learned from the daily operations and Return of Forces to Germany (REFORGER) exercises occurring on the existing Combat Equipment Group- Europe (CEGE) sites. Information in this report was compiled from three sources relevant to the decision-making process: (1) supplies and equipment data, (2) Army and Congressional literature, and (3) the experience and knowledge of CEGE personnel. Volume 1 presents POMCUS-related supply and equipment data from the Army Automated Data System (TAADS), and discusses ways to improve POMCUS. Volume 2 outlines design information for POMCUS facilities and sites.
