Abstract:

Army aviation offers a very real capability for shipboard employment. Under the right circumstances, such a capability can be invaluable to a Joint Force commander. This monograph explores potential employment options and force packages for Army aviation operating from Navy vessels and platforms. It assesses the operational utility of such employment and considers a number of implications and impacts associated with shipboard operations. Through the use of ship-based force packages that can be scaled from team to battalion task force size and tailored with specific capabilities, Army aviation can provide support to a wide range of joint force missions.
