Abstract : This study proposes specific changes to joint, Service, and combined doctrine; organizational structure; and automated planning and reporting systems necessary to more effectively and efficiently conduct joint Reception, Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration (RSOI) in any combatant command's geographic area of responsibility (AOR). An analysis of existing joint, Service, and combined doctrine determined that there is very limited doctrine relating to joint RSOI processes. This study makes specific recommendations for changes to, or the creation of, new doctrine. An analysis of theater organizational structure determined that current structures for conducting RSOI and theater LOC operations are fragmented and duplicative among the Services. This study offers several options that could enhance a combatant command's ability to conduct RSOI operations. This study also examined existing and developing automated planning and reporting systems and recommends changes or modifications to these systems that could enable combatant commands to plan and conduct RSOI operations more effectively.
