Abstract:

The United States Navy USN can rapidly respond to disasters due to high levels of readiness that are maintained on a constant basis. The USNs unique capabilities allow the Department of Defense DoD to engage in global humanitarian operations. We study optimization of the USNs assets based on the existing work that analyzes USN disaster relief operations. In light of budget cuts, the realignment of forces, and the restructuring of the services, there is need for research identifying specific naval assets and their utility for conducting humanitarian operations. Our research is another step in that direction.
