Abstract
The Strategic Lift Concept study team was requested by the Director Force Planning and Program Coordination to examine in more detail the utility provided by the lift component in the proposed design of the ALSC (Afloat Logistics and Sealift Capability) vessel as part of project M2673. The project team utilized the STRATL mobility model to analyze potential strategic movement scenarios involving specific operational structures, the proposed ship design, and several levels of strategic air transport capability. The utility of the ALSC capability in the transport of current and future Canadian Forces operational units to a potential theatre of operations was quantified in terms of deployment timeline.
