Abstract:

This report describes the heavy brigade propositioned PREPO afloat operations processes for the alert phase, deployment phase, and theater reception and onward movement phase. The report identifies the processestasks performed by the off-load preparation party OPP, advance party, transportation group, and main body. It identifies the overall duration time of the operations and recommendations to reduce that time. Two situations were examined 1 pier side off-load, and 92 in-stream off-load. A decision support system DSS is under development by the TRADOC Analysis Center TRAC to encompass the PREPO operations to allow staff planners to determine durations for various contingencies.
