Abstract:

The growing number of natural disasters combined with increasingly decentralized terrorist threats mandate that the Department of the Army DA be prepared to support civil authorities within the continental United States if a disaster occurs. This thesis endeavors to determine the statutory and regulatory restrictions emplaced upon DA Title 10 forces to provide Defense Support of Civil Authorities DSCA following a Presidential declaration of disaster. Research was conducted to determine the current DSCA capabilities and processes as well as uncover areas for improvement. Those improvement areas were then evaluated across the DOTmLPF-P spectrum to find ways to increase the efficacy of a Title 10 Army DSCA response.
