Abstract:

The ALSA Amphibious Logistics Support Ashore computer program simulates the construction and cargo delivery functions required to support the logistical component of a Marine Corps amphibious assault at the Maring Amphibious Force MAF level. Input consists of either available or baseline quantities of each type of construction equipment and cargo handling equipment along with the respective operational characteristics, as well as construction requirements, and a schedule of cargo delivered to the beach. Model output consists of equipment requirements and utilization, the completion times for all construction projects, and a compilation of all cargo delivered as a function of time. The model output is designed to assist in the assessment of logistics requirements for amphibious assault operations.
