Abstract:

Establishing an effective and secure operating and logistics base under austere conditions, either at home or abroad, regardless of whether the origin of the crisis is military or strictly humanitarian in nature, is a complex mission. Unfortunately, the doctrine supporting the life-cycle management of base camp facilities is poorly codified and usually unstructured due to the disparate nature of the governmental organizations tasked with accomplishing these missions. In order to overcome this problem, the Department of Systems Engineering at the United States Military Academy USMA at West Point has developed functional and non-functional requirements for, and has partially implemented a commercial-off-the-shelf COTS knowledge management KM system that facilitates the sharing of this type of specialized information for military and civilian members of the Base Camp Community of Practice CoP.
