Abstract:

This document discusses a project designed to study for the first time the actual military uses of rapidly deployed U.S. forces. It is clear that before speed and cost can be brought into appropriate balance, there must be quantitative answers to such questions as What is the relationship between speed of deployment and size of the U.S. forces required. What is the effect on the outcome of N days of combat of varying the U.S. force size or the U.S. force commitment time. With a given deployment mode, what is the size of the U.S. force needed to achieve a fixed objective.
