Abstract:

The Airlift Request System which has evolved over the years, has experienced major modifications both in the services that operate the system and procedures, terminology and organizational structure that make up the system internally. As a result disconnects have surfaced, particularly in the regulations that detail the system and during exercises when the system is put to the test. Additionally, disagreements between the US Army and US Air Force prevent rewrite of the promulgating regulations, thereby exacerbating the problem. This study examines those disconnects, obsolete regulations and differences. Recommendations are presented to solve these problems.
