Abstract:

The potential benefits in airlift operations that MAC can expect from MACIMS were analyzed and are reported. MAC has the dual responsibility of first, deploying combat forces with their immediate supplies and equipment into the combat zone and second, sustaining the combat forces as long as they remain in the combat zone. During the Pueblo Crisis and Tet Offensive of 1968, MACIMS would have aided MAC in reducing the closure time by reducing excess ground times at enroute stations and by increasing ACL utilization of military channel resupply missions. In the post-1974 era MACIMS will aid MAC in improving ACL utilization through the capability to plan the use of aircraft pallet spaces for each mission segment prior to mission launch. The document contains the rationale and techniques used to arrive at these conclusions.
