The purpose of this research is to explore options to get Air Force Special Operations Command redeployers back to their home stations quicker than the current process and improve deploy-to-dwell ratios. Specifically, this paper explores organizing the redeployment process based off the turnover requirement of the redeployer first. Airlift can be optimized based off the redeployers requirements. The research explores blending aggregated airlift with commercial tickets to return deployers on separate timelines. By doing such, 280 day of dwell time can be recovered for a group of a 100 deployers. This model gives commanders flexible transportation solutions to manage the deploy-to-dwell ratio of their force.
