Future Logistics in a Dispersed and Contested Environment

This presentation covers a capstone study with expected completion in March 2022, that attempts to use simulation and an analysis of alternatives (AoA) to recommend a procurement strategy for aircraft or airships that perform logistics in a distributed and contested environment. In addition to legacy assets the study will consider five new craft concepts. Status-quo as well as contested scenarios will be included to help simulate anticipated future conflicts. The overall goal is to provide a strategy that procures a logistics solution that is more flexible, rapidly fielded, sustainable, adaptable, and less vulnerable.
