The Field Logistics System FLS program implementation involves a highly interoperable set of hardware, documentation, and personnel, and reflects a dynamic evolution of events. More specifically, it represents an interface of dimensionally standardized equipment and trained personnel to sustain the Fleet Marine Force FMF at a level of logistic response or readiness that is consistent with the operational demands of mission accomplishment. This executive summary provides an overview of the program status as recorded during the first quarter of FY81 and highlights selected accomplishments. The FLS is comprised of five major subsystems container, shelter, motor transport, material handling equipment, and service support. These five subsystems encompass 57 elements, equating in total to more than 150,000 separate items of equipment. The FLS elements are judged upon their individual merits with regard to approval for development and acquisition. However, their interrelationships and dependencies, as reflected in the plan, must be recognized and taken into account in order to ensure no degradation of operational capability when FLS equipment is introduced and the current equipment is retired. This plan updates one previously published in December 1979. It provides a current analysis of each elements status, funding profiles, and acquisition milestones. Pertinent issues relating to development and procurement actions are highlighted. When appropriate, milestone changes are discussed in terms of potential impact upon other developmental efforts.
