the Marine Corps laid out its vision of how it will conduct future amphibious warfare. Under OMFTS, combat forces will be deployed from the sea base directly to an objective ashore. This approach drastically reduces logistics infrastructure ashore and retains these capabilities at the sea base. Numerous studies have been conducted to date regarding future STOM requirements of moving forces, equipment, and supplies ashore; however, minimal effort has been exerted thus far in resolving the issue of sustaining the continuously-depleted resources of the sea base. This thesis compares alternatives for resupplying the sea base. Different scenarios are analyzed for how well each resupply alternative is able to maintain required levels of food, fuel, and ordnance at the sea base with varying distances from the Forward Logistics Site. The scenarios differ by distances between the sea base and FLS, consumption rates at the sea base, and shuttle ship alternatives. Sustainment requirements and safety stock levels are determined and compared for twelve different cases. This analysis provides insight into the type and number of resupply ships needed to maintain sustainment requirements at the sea base.
