Summary Resilience in Major Conflict Reaping lessons learned from the all WIC activities, analyze mission resilience in a major conflict by extending the "kill chain" from "metal bending to metal delivery". This study will be a "demonstration of an analysis method" like the SEA 26 cohort that used set base design for force structure analysis. This will be an extension to the SEA29 work in "Logistics in Contested Environments". Reaping lessons learned from the all WIC activities, analyze mission resilience in a major conflict by extending the "kill chain" from"metal bending to metal delivery". This study will be a "demonstration of an analysis method" like the SEA 26 cohort that used set base design for force structure analysis. This will be an extension to the SEA29 work in "Logistics in Contested Environments". As an example, select a critical mission like antisubmarine warfare then trace the way back from say, a light weight torpedo (LWT) attack by a SH-60 on a SSK to all the elements required to make that happen, from manufacture, to material, to personnel, to logistics, in order see vulnerabilities in the entire kill chain, or in the case of weapon inventories, the 300th LWT drop. These would include, but not be limited to, critical metals in the LWT and their source; manpower and production capability at NUWC and manufacturing systems; logistics lift from manufacturer to APOE and SPOE sites; logistics lift to contingent bases; and for capability for re-arming at sea.
