Abstract:

Incorporation of the Total Force Policy within US national military strategy requires a more comprehensive assessment of existing RC unit combat capability status, with a view toward two objectives first, to identify those units that have achieved and can sustain a degree of capability such that achievement of minimum deployment standards should be reached within prescribed mobilization time requirements and second, within those units failing to achieve and sustain such a degree of capability, isolate those inhibiting factors precluding such achievement with the view of instituting corrective action through effective management and control. Inasmuch as the present unit readiness reporting system is incapable either accurately assessing RC unit combat capabilities or accounting for the Armys capability to improve thereupon under emergency conditions, a systematic methodology to meet this need is proposed in detail. The proposed system weighs capability in terms of elapsed post-mobilization time, and would produce the ancillary benefits of portraying incremental gains in capability a critical factor with respect to Congressional relations and providing a means of exercising effective control and management of RC peacetime capability.
