Abstract : The Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology (ASA(ALT)) requested that the Army Science Board (ASB) establish a study team to make recommendations for approaches to those challenges in order to reduce sustainment requirements, logistical footprints, and other demands attendant upon deployed brigade combat teams (BCTs). The Terms of Reference (TOR) memorandum for this study is found in Appendix A. The team's objectives for this 2-year effort were to identify methods and approaches to reduce demand, make supply more efficient and effective, and increase mission-oriented use of warrior time. The study team has gathered a database of information compiled from literature searches. interviews with subject matter experts (SMEs). and visits to installations and academic institutions. The team believes the Army can improve expeditionary force resiliency and reduce logistical burdens by adopting proposed enhancements outlined in the body of this report. Some recommendations can be implemented now and others over time as new equipment and technologies emerge from research and transition to fielded inventory. Some recommendations will require policy and organizational changes, and the process to do so will be incumbent on senior Army leadership. All of the approaches and recommendations were developed in light of doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) domains in order to reduce the risk of unintended consequences.
