Abstract:

The Future Combat System is drawing from the Operation and Organization Plan and Operational Requirements Document a concept of having a 72 combat pulse, with rotation of the combat elements back to the MSS for resupply and rest before rotating back intoanother 72 pulse. During the combat pulse, there would three periods of intense activity, separated by lulls. These lulls, called maintenance pulses, allow repair/replace of minor Line Replenishment Units by crews of combat repair teams and other minorreplenishment at the SRS. These pulses are intense, and the lulls are short. Therefore, one needs to be able to bring every platform back up to full stock and readiness status in a brief period. Everything must be exactly prestaged and coordinated. Inorder to accomplish this, all the distribution elements supporting the SRS and MSS must be integrated into that fluid and dynamic process.21st Century Technologies Inc. and Cougaar Software, Inc. will demonstrate real-time consumption feeds (Class V for Phase I) for flow back from the forward edge maneuver units to the SRS, MSS and distribution system allowing the dynamic generation of avery tight plan for precision resupply during the SRS maintenance pulse and MSS resupply periods. This will directly support the TACOM Smart Distribution Program and willprovide the basis of a joint collaboration between TACOM and the Future CombatSystems program.
