Abstract:

This pretest verified the Services capabilities for using a heavy-lift breakbulk ship to deploy certain LOTS heavy and outsized equipment. The only item not considered feasible, because of its weight and size, is the DeLong B barge. The pretest also provided the first opportunity in over 4 years to conduct a container throughput exercise. This opportunity provided the experience required by military personnel which will be amplified during the main test.
