The Joint Distance Support and Response (JDSR) is an Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) initiative approved by the United States Joint Forces Command (JFCOM). The purpose of ACTD is to exploit mature and maturing technologies and rapidly transit new capability to address military problems, while JDSR aims to establish a common tele-maintenance environment to improve the efficiency of field military services to support war fighters. The operational concept of JDSR is to provide near real time maintenance solutions in an operational fighting environment to enhance situational awareness of platforms and weapon systems operational status for the joint task force commander. This common Joint Service tele-maintenance capability is achieved through the use of advanced commercial technologies integrated with the Services' ongoing development initiatives to provide four integrated functions: remote collaboration, information/knowledge sharing, remote weapon/platform diagnostics, and distant maintenance mentoring at the point of maintenance. The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the cost savings and the benefits of implementing the JDSR capability. This thesis will Develop a recommended standard for performing business case analyses of J/ACTDs, including defining the analytic structure required in a business case report. Conduct the JDSR ACTD business case analysis, including a baseline analysis and an extensive sensitivity analysis.
