Abstract : This paper summarizes the proceedings of the first annual workshop of Service mobile basing programs held at the Institute for Defense Analyses on August 9-10, 1993. The conference was convened to discuss the range of programs related to mobile basing requirements, including living quarters, laundry, kitchens, water, and electrical power. These topics are components of three main programs in the Services: the Air Force Bare Base program, the Army Provider program, and the Navy and Marine Corps Advanced Base Functional Components. The conference consisted of a day of briefings on the Service programs and a day of workshops to exchange ideas on bare base requirements, system engineering and planning. Participants from each of the Services prepared briefings on their respective programs which are included as an appendix to the report. The primary objective of the conference was to enhance the exchange of information between the Services on programs related to mobile basing. Participants of the meeting agreed that improved and increased coordination among the Services is desirable. A key aspect of coordination is consolidating requirements across the services whenever possible. In addition, future planning and coordination efforts should be undertaken within the context of a systems approach. The conference provided a useful forum to begin the process of improving information exchange across the Services.
