Abstract:

The Joint Seabasing concept as articulated in the Seabasing Joint Integrating Concept JIC is currently proposed as a solution to overcome current and future access challenges. Regional Combatant and Joint Force Commanders RCCJFC have the expectation that the services will provide forces capable of conducting the full range of military operations ROMO in support of their regional requirements. The more demanding and imposing of these challenges is joint forcible entry operations JFEO in support of major combat operations MCO from a Seabase in the absence of a supporting land bases. The Army has developed several solutions to employ its current and future force to help the JFC overcome these challenges and dominate in MCO from the Seabase. Even though each solution offers the JFC with greater capabilities than previously harnessed, neither concept consummately adapts itself to the JICs measures of performance nor the Armys Seabasing force capabilities criteria as outlined in its capstone and concept documents. The Army should modify its current solutions and concepts with innovative applications using current capabilities to provide the RCCs with a robust MCO forcible entry Seabasing capability today.
