dc.description.abstractThis research evaluated the effectiveness of the MRAP-All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV), joint lightweight tactical vehicle, and the High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) using multi-criteria effectiveness analysis within the context of the USMC Marine operating concept and National Security and Defense strategies. The Marine Corps is resource constrained and must carefully allocate resources. Having three vehicles perform the same mission is not efficient, nor a proper use of taxpayer dollars. A model was developed that quantifies how well a vehicle performs given the criteria of mobility, transportability, and protection per the Marine Corps ground tactical vehicle strategy (GCTVS). The model also factored in the identified future adversary and threat environments, applied those performance measures to the projected portfolio mix, and assessed the total efficacy of the GCTVS weighted for the given threat environment. The model predicted a cumulative 10% increase in portfolio efficacy through 2030 by restricting HMMWV use in the Middle East and divesting from the M-ATV no later than fiscal year 2021. If applied to the current GCTVS, this research could reshape the long-term profile of the Marine Corps’ tactical wheeled vehicle fleet. The model developed could be applied to other Department of Defense portfolios to provide an objective quantitative measure beyond cost to evaluate and develop portfolio strategies.en_US
