Abstract
J4 Movements is responsible for tasking Canadian Forces (CF) airlift resources for major operations and, if these resources are insufficient, to contract commercial airlift as well. Recently, J4 Movements has become concerned with combined effects of rapidly increasing cost of commercial airlift, lack of availability of commercial airlift during times of international crisis and the lack of sufficient CF resources. J4 Movements tasked the Joint Staff Operational Research Team to develop a tool to estimate the extent of commercial airlift required to augment the current CF fleets in various planning scenarios.
