Abstract:

The Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore JLOTS II joint test and evaluation project was conducted to assess the Services current capability in Assault Follow-on Echelon AFOE and Logistics Over-the-Shore LOTS operations. This is the latest in a series of joint tests begun in 1970 to aid the development and to demonstrate container handling capability in AFOELOTS operations. JLOTS II was separated into three test phases. Phase I, the Deployment Test, was to assess the capability to deploy the logistics delivery equipment in merchant ships to the operating area. Phase II, the Roll-OnRoll-Off RORO Test, was to assess the capability to assemble, install, and operate an offshore RORO Discharge Facility and to deliver vehicular cargo ashore from merchant RORO vessels. Phase III, the Throughput Test, was 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. The Throughput Test is reported in three documents A Quick Look Report An Operational Report and this report, the Analysis and Evaluation Report.
