About the Edition

This research analyzes the process used to evaluate potential relocation sites for Army Reserve units from the perspective of military readiness. A comparative decision model (based upon Multi-Attribute Utility Theory), augmented by a Geographic Information System (GIS), was designed and implemented in an automated Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS). This SDSS provides a flexible structure that can be generalized to serve as an executable conceptual model for a wide range of decisions containing significant geographic or location related components. The Army Reserve Installation Evaluation System (ARIES) integrates several commercial software products in a seamless and synergistic manner. Data extracted from numerous large databases is spatially processed by a commercial mapping engine, and then overlaid onto a formal decision model. The decision maker can rely on a single, simplified interface that consistently applies the professional judgement of a panel of experts to produce standardized reports, or choose from a robust suite of methods for model management, sensitivity analysis, and the display of results. A process that previously required weeks can now be completed in minutes. More important, this approach improves the decision maker"s effectiveness by conveniently providing insights into the nature of the source data and the decision process.

Ma - Army Reserve instructors carry a wealth of knowledge and experience in training the force for numerous military specialties. The instructors from the 3rd Brigade, 94th Training Division – Force Sustainment are no exception as they train Army Reserve, National Guard, active-duty, and Civilian personnel on the military’s newest tactical vehicle: the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle.

For example, the Battle Command Sustainment Support System (BCS3) (the successor to the often-maligned Combat Service Support Control System) has many applications for providing logistics commanders a more complete near-real-time picture of the situation within an area of operations than they have had in the past.

In addition, thirty-two nonarmory facilities, which provide administrative and logistical support to Reserve Component units, were authorized for the National Guard at an estimated cost of $ million. The Army Reserve does not fund separately for this type of facility, since such requirements are constructed as part of a reserve center.

The importance of knowledge-based systems for decision support applications in the military area is emphasized. Design of a Spatial Decision Support System was proposed to incorporate a commercial automated decision support system was launched. An earlier thesis (Murphy, ) developing a SDSS for relocation of Army Reserve units was studied for applicability to the Naval Reserve problem.

The Army National Guard's dual role is as a state military force under the governor and as a reserve component of the Army that the President may mobilize for federal service.

In DSCA, military forces support a primary (or lead) civilian agency. JOPES was the Department of Defense's automated system that tracked deploying units and equipment. Although JOPES had proven an effective tool in training exercises, the fast pace of DESERT SHIELD deployments demonstrated JOPES' inability to locate a particular unit's loads until the final ships' manifests were put into the JOPES data banks.

As the MP Corps continues to advance into the twenty-first century, it must continue to pursue and stay in tune with the Army.

Initially the system would use the Honeywell Level 6 computer of the Decentralized Automated Service Support System in the medical supply optical and maintenance units and at the medical command levels; the Division Level Data Device, an IBM Series I computer, was envisioned at all treatment facilities and command and control units.
