This report concludes that the Military Services have retracted considerably from original goals and objectives for attainment of a container handling capability. The Army has slipped by two years its conversion schedule of breakbulk companies to container capable ones. The Navy has nearly completed its research and development of cranes for a ship-TCDFTemporary Container Discharge Facility but has slipped procurements until FY83. The report concludes that it will be from five to seven years before ship-TCDFs will be available for Amphibious Forces. No commitments have been made by the Army for cranesship-TCDFs, presumably pending successful operational testing. The report also finds that the navy has not fully identified funding for development and testing of a RORO platform. Finally, the report recommends that LOTS program requirements be placed under ASD, PAE in order that certain policy guidance, procedures, doctrines and program emphasis for OSD can be accomplished.
