This project examines some possible direct effects of shorter Reserve Component deployments to small-scale contingencies. The Reserve Component is used more frequently to support these operations, many of which include a 180-day rotation. Ninety and 120-day rotations were examined as alternatives. The analysis indicates that there is little benefit to the Army of shortening rotation durations other than reducing the time individual reservists spend deployed. For the Army, the costs increase, personnel tempo increases, and there is more risk in the operations.
