Abstract:

Operation Desert ShieldDesert Storm served as a wake-up call to the Department of Defense in regards to its mobility posture and capabilities. After more than a decade to evaluate and respond to the lessons learned, has the Department of Defense improved its mobility capabilities Successive Mobility Requirements Studies since 1991 have set forth what mobility capabilities the combatant commander foresees. This paper reviews the progress of mobility capabilities from Desert Storm to the present. It will review and evaluate the legs of the mobility triad, airlift, sealift and prepositioning for actions taken to improve each portion. This evaluation will provide the basis for the overall assessment of the global mobility capabilities the Department of Defense currently has.
