Abstract:

The Situation Awareness Logistics Tool SALT is a concept demonstrator developed under the Theatre Situation Awareness TSA task JTW 02212 for the J4 staff at HQJOC. SALT is a web application that enables theatre logisticians to access and share data on critical supplies, personnel, terrain and infrastructure pertinent to each operation. This document provides a brief design and implementation overview of SALT before going into depth regarding the incorporated Forecasting tool. The Forecasting Tool enables theatre logisticians to forecast the status of critical supplies for the near future using different assumptions about the potential demand on those supplies.
