This capstone report supports the needs of two United States Marine Corps Sponsors: Marine Forces Pacific (MARFORPAC) and the Marine Corps Expeditionary Energy Office (E2O). Marine Forces Pacific approached the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to provide a capability to model deployment scenarios and perform trade-off analysis between naval, maritime and commercial shipping based upon expediency of expeditionary forces arriving at a designated seabase. Expeditionary Energy Office approached NPS to provide a capability to predict energy consumption of the Marine Expeditionary Force in support of reducing dependency on fossil fuels in a deployed environment. The needs of these two independent sponsors were combined based on planning guidance from the 35th and 36th Commandants of the Marine Corps (CMC) emphasizing the need to reduce fuel consumption during Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) operations and identify alternative shipping to augment the Navy’s 33 ship amphibious force (Amos 2010; Dunford 2015). Based on the CMC planning guidance and the sponsors capability needs specific research questions were established to frame the scope of research to the assessment and selection of fuel efficient alternative shipping sufficient to transport Marines and their equipment from home port to seabase during a range of military operations.
