Abstract : This study was undertaken as an initial effort to investigate the employment of the Engineer System in Light Contingency Corps operations. This study focused on the northeast Asia contingency. It employs as a vehicle three different scenarios and attempts to address the employment of the Engineer System in each, as it influences mobility, countermobility, survivability, and general engineering tasks. The study contains considerable information and historical perspectives on the chosen area of operations (Korea). It provides some appreciation of the terrain, climate, people, transportation, and historically revisits the Korean War to learn or relearn old lessons. The special requirements for aviation support for command, control, and communications/supervision were also addressed. From this, it is hoped that stimulus for further and more detailed research be generated. Additionally, the need for a simple, but effective, prioritization scheme was explored and discussed.
