The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review emphasized the importance of the Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief (HA/DR) mission in rebalancing the Asia-Pacific region. The coupling of the U.S. pivot to the Pacific and the frequency of natural disasters in the vicinity of Sumatra, Indonesia, focused this research project on the disaster response capabilities of the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Laut [TNI AL]) and theUnited States Marine Corps–Marine Expeditionary Unit (USMC MEU). To examine the gaps between demand and supply, we derived potential demand through the analysis of historical HA/DR scenarios while garnering potential supply through a study of the TNI AL and USMC MEU organic assets. Through this analysis, we created a capabilities matrix to capture and present both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of HA/DR demand and available responder supply. This matrix encompasses the general categories of personnel, material, logistics, and communication, and how these categories affect the availability of medical support, sustenance, habitat, and infrastructure. The completed matrix identified regional capability shortfalls that can be addressed to increase future HA/DR responsiveness. These include the procurement of additional vertical lift, the pre-positioning of critical supplies, and the building of population resiliency.
