This thesis follows a systems engineering (SE) approach to develop system-level requirements and Measures of Effectiveness (MOE) for an amphibious fuel distribution system (AFDS) in the context of the expeditionary advanced base operations (EABO) concept. EABO entails small, distributed operations, under the threat umbrella of enemy detection and fires, with amphibious maneuvers initiated from over the horizon. The Navy has the responsibility to deliver fuel to the high-water mark in support of expeditionary operations ashore. However, the Navy developed the current fuel distribution systems to support 1980s-era doctrine, resulting in a system that is unable to support the tenets of EABO. The Navy and Marine Corps team is currently developing new amphibious fuel capabilities and requires a baseline for what AFDSs must do and how to measure success. Previous research has focused on the fuel demand of various operational scenarios, optimization of maneuver asset scheduling, development of delivery planning tools, and analysis of the fully burdened cost of fuel. Existing work on AFDS MOEs does not follow an SE approach. Using an SE process, specifically in needs and stakeholder analyses, this thesis proposes 28 system-level requirements and 12 MOEs for AFDSs in support of EABO.
