The strategic distribution system in support of Operation Enduring Freedom by Marc L Robbins( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In early 2000, leaders of the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) agreed to embark jointly on the "Strategic Distribution" program (SD) as a means to streamline and improve significant elements of the Defense distribution system, and thereby deliver more reliable and cost-effective service to DoD forces and organizations in the United States and around the globe. For over a year and a half, SD teams made considerable progress in enhancing the underlying structure of the Defense distribution system and improving service through a series of rolling implementations. In 2001, Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) posed a demanding challenge to the Defense distribution system and tested the principles and strategies that were being implemented. SD's main goal of providing fast, reliable service to its worldwide customers had to be met in a new environment in which vital resources, usually devoted to moving cargo to worldwide military units, were pulled away for months at a time to support other war-related missions, while forces were deployed to new bases at the far ends of the globe. This documented briefing seeks to explain the multistranded story of SD, discussing why a significant change was needed in Defense distribution, how SD sought to transform the system, and how well that system met the challenge of OEF

Quantity distances for ammunition in ISO containers by Landon K Davis( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was conducted to (a) develop realistic estimates of the safety hazard ranges (i.e., quantity distances, or "QD's") for accidental explosions of ammunition in ISO shipping containers, and (b) investigate methods for reducing QD's for ammunition containers at temporary storage sites. The QD's of interest are the Inhabited Building Distance (IBD), Public Traffic Route distance (HR), and Intermagazine Distance (IMD). QD's were established for the U.S. Army's49 current Strategic Configured Loads (SCL's), as examples of mixed ammo loads. Phase 1 of the study was an analytical effort, in which QD's were calculated using accepted analytical methods. The calculated IBD's and PIR's for the 49 SCL's generally ranged from 30 to 80 percent less than those derived from the current U.S. and NATO safety standards. IMD's were similarly reduced, ranging from about 50 to 75 percent less than those indicated by current standards. Phase 2 was a test program to verify the reduction in safe separation distance)
