Abstract:

This manual documents the Strategic Mobility 21 SM21 Multi-Modal Terminal Model capabilities and functions. SM21 is an operational level concept that merges planning and execution of both commercial freight operations and the deployment and sustainment of joint military forces within a single construct of a Joint Power Projection Support Platform JPPSP. The JPPSP can be described as a single transportation node that will be developed to seamlessly integrate with and support the end-to-end military and commercial distribution network. The inland multi-modal transfer facility, a key component of the JPPSP, can be described as a central node on a dual use regional agile distribution network. The JPPSP multi-modal transfer facility presents a capability to achieve rapid military deployment and responsive commercial support and will be designed for replication in other geographic regions of the U.S. The model includes four sub models the Highway Activity Sub-model, the Airlift Activity Sub model, the Rail Activity Sub model, and the Storage Activity Sub model.
