Abstract:

The Pacific Region and more specifically Southeast Asia and the East Asian littoral are growing daily in their economic and strategic importance to our nation. Currently the preponderance of forces assigned to the Theater is oriented toward Northeast Asia and the potential for conflict on the Korean peninsula. While this treat continues to exist, the US Pacific Command PACOM must also pursue a neat term methodology to expand its operational reach and ability to respond to contingencies throughout the East Asian littoral, especially within Southeast Asia. The operational factors of space, force, and time must be managed through a system of enhanced basing options, improved mobility and increased presence.
