When the military operations are conducted in areas where port facilities for containerships are not available for either military or geographic reasons, then the supplies and equipment must be brought ashore in Logistics Over-the-Shore LOTS operations. The Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore JLOTS II joint test and evaluation project is intended to assess the Services current capability to conduct Assault Follow-On Echelon AFOE and LOTS operations. This is the latest in a series of joint tests begun in 1970 to aid in the development of a container handling capability in AFOELOTS operations. JLOTS II is separated into three test phases. Phase I, the Deployment Test, is to assess the capabilities to deploy the logistics delivery equipment in merchant ships to an operating area. Phase II, the Roll-OnRoll-Off RORO test, is to assess the capability to assemble, install, and operate an offshore RORO Discharge Facility and to deliver vehicular cargo ashore from merchant RO RO vessels. Phase II, the Throughput Test, is to assess the Services capability to install and use their delivery systems for container, breakbulk, and bulk liquid cargo and to define the operating performance of the combined systems in a joint test. This report covers the Phase I, Deployment Test.
