Cargo throughput and survivability trade-offs in force sustainment operations

Force sustainment requires an optimum supply of resources to maintain and project power in an area. With sustainment reaching ever farther from the origin of supplies, commanders find an increasing exposure of their logistic trains to risk. To mitigate the increased risk from hostile forces, the survivability of supply vehicles must be considered in force sustainment operations to accurately capture a true throughput projection. Development of an optimum throughput plan for littoral sustainment will reduce overall risk to supplies and maximize throughput to the war-fighter. The research conducted focused on maximizing throughput considering the size, quantity, and risk to the cargo vehicles traversing the littoral arena. The major risk component studied is comprised primarily of littoral mines, though this risk is comparable to many other survivability situations. Use of data collected from computer modeling programs are used to compute and maximize throughput.
