The ultimate goal of this work is to help N81 better understand the causes, risks and mitigations to campaign logistics for the Force. This task will first analyze the flow of fuels by type (i.e. JP-5, JP-8, DFM, etc.) from worldwide sources to in theater demands as a multi-commodity scheduling problem, taking into account the distribution of both raw and refined product. This task will then use analytic methods (such as Attacker Defender modeling) to explore the critical disruptions and corrective rerouting to the fuel flow, to include interdicting selected ports. Finally, this task will explore the tradeoffs between number of force protection packages for ports and transport ships and the success of the fuel flow, measured by delivery to theater.
This work builds upon analyses of bulk fuel distribution as presented in Technical Report NPS-OR-14-001R to analyze bulk fuel capability and risk in the 2028 CC-2 Campaign.
