This draft report on the design of a joint Logistics-Over-The-Shore LOTS operational test sets forth the purpose and objectives of the joint LOTS test, provides guidelines and parameters for its conduct, and outlines an analysis plan and data collection requirements. This report expands upon a LOTS Test Definition and Feasibility Study accomplished for the Deputy Director Test and Evaluation. That study outlined a test to evaluate the Services capability to conduct LOTS operations, including deployment, throughput, and the interface with distribution systems. At that time the need was recognized for the conduct of a series of preliminary field tests to demonstrate the feasibility of deploying selected LOTS heavy and outsized equipment aboard representative merchant ships and to provide data for refinement of the LOTS main test. The results of these tests, as applicable, have been incorporated in the test design. The report also includes a summary of the interim results of the LOTS simulation model used to validate the main test concept and refine resource requirements.
