Abstract:

The report examines the logistical implications of the U.S. Armys doctrinal evolution for AirLand Operations. The operational cycle for AirLand Operations is reviewed to determine possible logistical requirements and doctrinal implications deduced from those requirements. Particular emphasis is placed on command, control, organization, plans, execution, and functions for logistics. Both combat support and combat service support are analyzed to assess support needs for the nonlinear battlefield. The role of the multifunctional support organization is also examined. The report concludes that new concepts for logistics will be needed.
