Abstract:

Defense support installations, such as shipyards, air stations, training centers, and communications stations, provide support to the combat units of the United States that is essential to the maintenance of the operational readiness of those units. As a result of recent events, these installations are highly vulnerable to the rapidly increasing costs of energy forms, to possible decreases in the general quality of available energy forms, and to any politically-motivated manipulation of energy production, deliveries, and prices. The need for carefully planned and decisively executed action by the military services to reduce this vulnerability is clearly evident. Improvements are needed both in systems and facility design and in operational and training doctrine to conserve the use of energy and to adapt to the use of more plentiful energy forms, while at the same time being careful not to produce unacceptable impacts on the combat readiness of our military forces and their costs.
