Abstract : The experience of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm (ODS) underscores the importance of maintaining the production capability in our industrial bases for critical items of military supply and material. During ODS, a number of items were identified as potential 'war stoppers'. DoD considers an item as a war stopper if it is critical in carrying out the mission of military services, low peacetime demand, high wartime demand, military unique, limited shelf life and have a limited and dedicated production base capability. Acquisition, supply and maintenance of war stoppers will be discussed in detail. Their application in Joint Military Planning and Military Operations Other Than War (MOOTW) will also be discussed.
