The purpose of this Science and Technology Objective- Demonstration STO-D is to reduce time and manpower requirements for protection of Soldiers and critical assets during early entry operations in austere environments. In future conflicts, power must be projected despite anti-accessarea denial A2AD challenges, to effectively deter potential adversaries and prevent them from achieving their objectives. This requires that small units have expedient protective structures and better planning capabilities as they maneuver from multiple locations and domains. All force protection technologies will have baseline capabilities assessed in early FY15 followed by integration experimentation and demonstrations during FY15. The FY16 demonstration assessed the capability to protect a contingency base within objective metrics for time and manpower. The effort in FY17 included Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership, Personnel, and Facilities DOTMLPF integration and the finalization of concept of operations CONOPs and tactics, techniques and procedures TTP for basing protection. CONOPsTTPs for the phases of base setup, operation and maintenance, and retrogradematerial reuse was documented in handbooks and planning tools that emphasized the most effective troop-to-task ratios. By FY17, all technologies were at TRL 6. Transitions where appropriate will be through PdM Force Protection Systems and PdD Contingency Base Infrastructure as well as the Army Facilities Components System.
