Logistics and Maintenance Options to Support the P-8A Poseidon's Expeditionary Mission
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research is to identify the maintenance and logistics support structure needed to support the P-8A''s Anti-submarine Warfare (ASW), Anti-surface Warfare (ASUW), and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, while operating away from Permanent Deployment Sites (PDS) in austere operating areas, and to provide a set of possible support recommendations for these missions. This study will focus on the existing maintenance and logistics support structures currently being utilized for missions being performed by the P-3 Orion, and to propose organizational and operational recommendations to better support the agile, flexible, and responsive missions requirement of the P-8A. The result will provide feasible alternatives for decision-makers regarding organizational design as well as logistics and maintenance requirements to support overseas deployments to remote, forward operating locations (FOL).
