Abstract : This paper analyses the strategic logistics system of past force projection operations covering the entire spectrum of war. It concludes with recommendations for logistics concepts for the Army in the next century. The analysis cites Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm (DS/DS), Restore Hope, Support Hope, and Joint Endeavor. It identifies problems with building the Time Phased Force Deployment Data (TPFDD), problems with Automated Data Processing (ADP) compatibility, problems in Command, Control and Communication (C3), and problems in training as causes for the lack of visibility of personnel and equipment in past operations. The paper concludes with recommendation for logistics concepts which should support the Army through the opening decades of the next century.
