Abstract : The Rapid Deployment Joint Task Force (RDJTF) is simply a four-service task force designed for use in southwest Asian contingencies. When it was originally conceived, the thought was that it could be used for any non-NATO contingency, but its design and exercise since then has obviously been pointed towards employment in southwest Asia, particularly the Persian Gulf area. A current example is the exercise, Operation Bright Star-82. Several lessons are drawn from that exercise.
