Abstract : The National Military Strategy requires the Army to be able to project power rapidly to any region where the vital interest of the United States are challenged. In the post cold war era, power projection operations can be defined in three phases; movement from home station to air/seaports of embarkation, deployment from air/seaports of embarkation to air/seaports of debarkation, and movement from air/seaports of debarkation to tactical assembly areas. This study looks at each phase and discusses improvements that are underway or necessary to conduct power projection operations in the most efficient manner.
